Dan Rod, caught up with Dan Miller prior to his fight last week.
Dan was training at the AMA Fight Club in New Jersey. The website for the club is: http://www.amafightclub.com/ - It is the home for the Miller brothers - Jim and Dan, Rafaello “Tractor” Oliveira, Charlie “The Spaniard” Brenneman amongst others. The club embraces the New Jersey culture and it is nicely located in a strip mall, next door to a Diner (not easy to cut weight with the smell of bacon in the backdoor though) in the Northern part of the state.
