LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller is doing something every politician dreams about: retiring undefeated.
But the 36-year-old son of former Gov. Bob Miller isn't saying goodbye to the political arena. He's just throwing his hat out of the ring - make that the octagon - after winning his first and only official mixed martial arts bout.
The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Miller claimed a second-round knockout in one of 10 amateur MMA fights the World Fighting Championship sponsored Saturday at a Lake Tahoe casino.
His walkout music was Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son." His corner mens' T-shirts read: "My secretary of state can arm bar your secretary of state.
Miller told the Las Vegas Review-Journal competing in an MMA event was on his bucket list, but now "I'm one and done."
