"I'm not afraid to take risks, I'm not afraid to lose, and I'm not afraid to die, and I'd gladly do all three for the fans of the UFC," Miller told the crowd after his win.
Lauzon had been knocked down early in the round, but recovered easily. Afterwards, he said he didn't even remember the knockdown.
"Did I? I don't even remember getting dropped."
Miller (16-4-0) and Lauzon changed positions a few times before Miller was able to lock his legs around Lauzon's neck, forcing Lauzon (12-3-0) to tap.
This is Miller's first win after losing to fellow "The Ultimate Fighter" alumnus Efrain Escudero. Lauzon, the brother of fellow UFC lightweight and 108 fighter Joe Lauzon, was making her first trip back to the Octagon after losing to Spencer Fisher at UFC 64.
