Miller has been dealt a six-month medical suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission following a positive X-Ray result on his left foot, Alexander K. Lee of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Miller can return sooner than the six-month window if he gains clearance from a doctor, so there is a chance he returns to the Octagon before Oct. 8. Given his recent struggles, losing three of his last four bouts, there may not be a huge rush to get him back on a card anyway, but Miller is forced to at least have no contact until May 2 and can't return until May 11 at the earliest even if cleared.

Miller lost to Joe Solecki via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 27-30) at UFC on ABC 2 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Miller's 37 UFC bouts are the most in company history, but his days with the promotion would appear to be numbered. The New Jersey native has be unable to win anything other than a prolonged ground battle for years. That's what he got here against Solecki, and Miller was still unable to emerge victorious. Miller had a fairly strong Round 1 before his gas tank quickly hit empty and Solecki controlled the final ten minutes. Miller's willingness to step int the Octagon against any opponent at any time has definite value, but he will be turning 38 years of age this coming August and is 1-3 in his past four fights dating back to February 2020. It's difficult to see it getting better.
