Bruce Buffer rejects unique UFC 300 request after saying 'the answer is no'

Bruce Buffer has rejected Jim Miller's unique UFC 300 request ahead of the blockbuster event.

UFC 300 is scheduled for April 13 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

BMF champion Justin Gaethje takes on Max Holloway while UFC women's strawweight title holder Zhang Weili meets fellow Chinese fighter Yan Xiaonan.

Miller, who has made millions of dollars during his UFC career, will also feature on the event as he faces Bobby Green.

And he wanted to be announced as Jim 'F**king' Miller by Buffer.

"I don’t know if Bruce [Buffer] will introduce me as Jim ‘F**king’ Miller," he said. "I don’t know if he swears when he’s working.

"He definitely swears when he’s not. I think it would be cool. I think it would be cool to maybe open the pay-per-view with that. I think doing that in front of the T-Mobile full of fans would be awesome.

"I think that would get me super fired up."

The 40-year-old added: "I earned that nickname. I earned that nickname by the way I do business inside the octagon and even outside. I earned that nickname from a guy that was matchmaking at UFC 2. When Joe Silva calls you that, it’s pretty cool. I’m glad that the fans are behind it. It’s not the easiest nickname to promote, but it’s there."

However, the legendary announcer has rejected Miller's request, saying he doesn't like cursing whilst working for the UFC and suggested an alternative nickname during the fighter's Octagon introduction.

"I don't like cursing in my job," said Buffer per ESPN Radio/Schmo.

"I respect Jim's wishes. At this point, the answer is no. I'd go for Jim 'Friggin' Miller, maybe."

Miller is on a two-fight winning streak heading into his UFC 300 match, having beaten Jesse Butler and Gabriel Benitez.
