Southside product Mark Miller is not a newcomer to fighting.  He came up through the ranks as part of Gilbert Grappling and now trains with Dino Costeas MMA and Team Toro Muay Thai.  Hardcore MMA fans will remember him from the International Fight League, where he challenged Jay Hieron for the Welterweight Crown.  The hard-hitting Miller is a cast member of the latest installment of  The Ultimate Fighter.

The ninth season of TUF will feature an international flavor as Team USA faces Team U.K.  Former Pride Fighting Championships Champion Dan Henderson coaches the Americans and Season 3 winner Michael Bisping heads the British team.  Miller will be a welterweight contender on Hendo’s team.  The show debuts April 1, 2009 at 9 P.M. CST on Spike TV.

Miller discusses his approach to the cage as well as his thoughts of the thriving Chicagoland MMA scene in this unbroadcasted interview with ChicagoMMA.com’s L.J. Tabano done last summer.  At the time of the taping Miller was preparing to compete in the debut of Monte Cox’s Adrenaline MMA promotion.
