Jim Miller is on one of the hottest streaks in the UFC right now, riding three massive finishes. Known for the submission game he used to finish his last fight vs. Cerrone, Miller began his current streak with a pair of knockouts against Erick Gonzalez and Nikolas Motta. He is the most experienced UFC fighter of all time, with 40 bouts, and holds the record for most wins of all time, at 24.
He is one of the most prolific finishers in the UFC, with 16 in total and ten coming in the first round.
This is the second time Alexander Hernandez has made a Sleeper Fight of The Week with us. His first time came against Billy Quarantillo in his last fight, which did not disappoint. His powerful striking and pure explosiveness make for firefights every time he steps inside the octagon. Unfortunately, he's hit a rough patch as of late, going 1-3 in his last four, dropping fights to Billy Q, Renato Moicano, and Thiago Moises.
Don't let this stat fool you, though, as even in losses, he's highly competitive and always puts on absolute bangers. He's a kill-or-be-killed fighter that is always worth watching, no matter the matchup.
Miller wants to pick up a win here and fight one more time at UFC 300 before riding off into the sunset. Hernandez looks to foil those plans explosively. Be sure to let us know your prediction in the comments below.
