Fighting is a family affair for the Millers.
Both Dan and Jim epitomize the old school mentality of “anyone, anytime, anywhere,” so when Dan pulled out of his UFC 152 fight against Sean Pierson you knew there had to be a legitimate reason for that withdrawal.
There was. Miller dropped out as his son, Danny, perhaps the toughest fighter on Team Miller, was readied for a long-needed kidney transplant.
That transplant, which had originally been scheduled for early this year but was postponed when Danny fell ill, finally took place on Thursday. From all accounts Danny, as well as the donor—his aunt Kathy—were both doing well during the recovery stage of the transplant.
