Nevada's Secretary of State Ross Miller Won't Fight Again

| by

One MMA fight was enough for Nevada's Secretary of State Ross Miller, who's calling it a career. Ross won in his amateur debut against Jamal Williams via TKO in round two.

"It was on my bucket list," said Miller on MMA Junkie Radio. "I'm kind of one and done. My wife was very anxious cageside watching the fight. So I think she's looking forward to me putting this behind me."

The fight took place August 18 at World Championship Fighting and wasn't promoted ahead of time.

"I kept it very quiet and had an agreement with the promoter, Matt McGovern, that he not publicize it at all," said Miller. "I wasn't doing it as secretary of state. I was doing it for myself. It was on my bucket list and part of my personal journey."

Miller will now shift his focus on the upcoming election season. He will still train, but remains admitted that he's retired.

"This is a sport where if you train in it, you're going to get beat up on a daily basis, mentally and physically," said Miller. "That's what I love about this sport. It's certainly physically challenging, but it requires a level of mental strength and resilience to overcome that. ... I think that's what I love about this sport."
