Jim Miller will be fighting out his contract at UFC 276 and he is quite surprised by that.

Miller is coming off back-to-back KO wins and is set to face Bobby Green on July 2 in Las Vegas in a fight that is years in the making. The fight will also serve as Miller’s 40th UFC appearance but it also could be his last as he revealed to BJPENN.com on Wednesday that he’s fighting out his contract, and it isn’t his choice.

“To be perfectly honest, the UFC is having me fight out my contract,” Miller told BJPENN.com on Wednesday. “I win and I still don’t know if there is another UFC fight. Who knows? I don’t really care or worry about what happens next.”

According to Miller, the news caught him by surprise, and was hoping to re-sign before the fight. However, the plan now is to put on a good performance and get a stoppage win over Bobby Green at UFC 276 to get him another contract.

“Apparently. Coming off two knockouts and apparently, I’m fighting out my contract,” Miller said. “It is where we are, it doesn’t affect anything, it doesn’t change anything. I still have a job to do July 2 and I’m planning on doing it to the best of my ability. We will see what happens and go from there.”

Jim Miller (34-16 and one No Contest) is coming off two straight KO wins over Nikolas Motta and Erick Gonzalez. Prior to that, he suffered back-to-back decision losses to Joe Solecki and Vinc Pichel.

Miller has been in the UFC since UFC 89 in 2008 and has fought the likes of Gray Maynard, Charles Oliveira, Benson Henderson, Nate Diaz, Joe Lauzon, Donald Cerrone, Dustin Poirier, Beneil Dariush, Anthony Pettis, Diego Sanchez, and Clay Guida among countless others.

The 2022 Camping World SRX Series season started with a bang last weekend at Five Flags Speedway, as the season opener played out in a completely unexpected way: Although the Superstar Racing Experience began its season on a premiere stock car asphalt short track, the battle for the win ended up being between a pair of IndyCar drivers, with Hélio Castroneves taking the lead late from Tony Kanaan and then driving away to take the win.

Between the performance of Castroneves, Kanaan, and Paul Tracy, SRX’s contingent of IndyCar stars proved they can more than hold their own in heavy stock cars. And they’ll try to prove that again this weekend at South Boston Speedway in South Boston, Va. One of the greatest short tracks in all of Southern Virginia, South Boston has produced a long line of notable NASCAR racers and champion drivers — Including Peyton Sellers, six times the track champion and this week’s local all-star.

Leading the way for the NASCAR contingent will be Ryan Newman, who started his first SRX season off with a third-place finish at Five Flags. Newman will look to establish himself as an SRX championship contender alongside fellow former NASCAR stars like Bobby Labonte, Michael Waltrip, and none other than Tony Stewart.

  • Date: Saturday, June 25
  • Location: South Boston Speedway — South Boston, Va.
  • Time: 8 p.m. ET

Martin Truex Jr. confirms he will return to Joe Gibbs Racing in 2023

Martin Truex Jr. confirms he will return to Joe Gibbs Racing in 2023

Martin Truex Jr. confirmed to reporters Friday night that he will return to Joe Gibbs Racing for the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season, ending speculation about his racing future. Truex’s current contract with Gibbs had been set to expire at the end of 2022, and he had been the subject of retirement rumors throughout the springtime.

Speaking in the Nashville Superspeedway media center, Truex made it clear that he would be back in Gibbs’ No. 19 next season, sharing that he and his race team agreed to a new contract that is still being worked on. Truex, who turns 42 next Wednesday, had spent the past six months contemplating his future.

“I wanted to just look at everything and see what it looked like both ways. The competitive side of me said I’m not done and I’m gonna keep fighting,” Truex said. “So, here we are.”

Truex’s 2022 season has yet to match to his recent standards, as he is currently winless and has just two top fives and seven top 10s despite sitting sixth in the points standings. However, Truex expressed that he still wants to race after contemplating what his life would be like if he stopped racing in Cup full-time.

“At the end of the day, it’s really all about a fight. If I want to keep going and doing what I’ve been doing, will I be happy in a year? Is it what I really, really want to do?”Truex said. “And at the end of the day, this is what I really want to do right now.”

After winning the Cup Series championship in 2017, Truex has remained a perennial championship contender and one of the top drivers in all of NASCAR. Truex has qualified for the Championship 4 of the playoffs five times since 2015, and he has followed up his Cup title with runner-up finishes in the final standings three out of the last four seasons.

With Truex returning for an 18th full-time season, he will continue to build on his career win total (31 victories) while also pursuing both a second Cup Series title and the things he has yet to accomplish. Truex is one of the notable veteran drivers to have never won the Daytona 500, with his best finish being an agonizing second-place run in the race’s closest finish ever in 2016.

While confirming that he would return for 2023, Truex noted that his commitment was currently only for next year. Alluding to the contemplation of his future, Truex said he would “probably” go through the same process about whether he’ll race in 2024.
