One of the World’s Strongest Men Gets Violent
One of the world's strongest men, Mike Miller, has thrown his hat into the MMA octagon. On a recent episode of the Super Human Radio show, elite Powerlifter turn WWE wrestler, Miller announce he has abandoned wrestling entertainment and is moving ahe

"I've been training in martial arts for over ten years" Miller told the host Carl Lanore during the interview. Miller set the Powerlifting world abuzz when he squatted 1,220 pounds and set a world record.
When he announced he was leaving his position as one of the strongest men in the world for a career as a WWE wrestler he created a buzz again. A short year later he announces he's walking away from the WWE. "I got tired of the politics" Miller offered as his reason for moving into MMA.
"I would be afraid for anyone who steps in the ring with you" Lanore offered to Miller. "With MMA you can't underestimate anybody" Miller replied, "You can't be a big headed guy…. Even the biggest and the best get knocked down."
Miller's strength is only dwarfed by his modesty. But it's clear that Miller's strength can set him apart in the heavyweight division once he works his way through the armature ranks. His sheer power could literally break the bones of his opponents as they attempt to block his monstrous blows.
Weighing in at over 400 pounds during the peak of his Powerlifting career, he has tapered his muscular physique down to 275 and still looks more like a human version of the Incredible Hulk.
When Lanore asked him about his chin and the ability to take a punch he offered a story of when he was a kid working on the farm. Using a six foot pinch bar to leverage heavy stones from the ground, he jumped on the bar and it slipped and hit him square in the chin. The blow would have knocked most men out but Miller simply shook his head and moved on. "You should fight" his buddy said to him when he witnessed it.
Miller spends all of his time training for his MMA debut fight which is due to occur in Fredericksburg, Virginia on November 7. "My coach feels that I'm ready" Miller continued "I just have to drop a few more pounds".
Everyone is behind Miler's MMA goal, his fans and most importantly his biggest supporter his wife Deb. "My family is a great source of strength, physical emotional and mental and my wife Deb is my link" Miller confirmed.
Look for Miller to be breaking bones in an octagon near you as he makes his way through the armature circuit.
