In the competitive world of UFC and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Juliana “Killer” Miller stands out as more than just a skilled fighter. Her journey embodies resilience, empowerment, and a staunch stance against bullying and abuse.  Born on May 7, 1996, in San Diego, California, this 5’7″ fighter has left a lasting impact in the Flyweight division, proudly representing Team Hurricane Awesome and Sikjitsu.

Early Journey and Noteworthy Achievements Juliana’s foray into combat sports began with her quest for self-defense through Brazilian JIU-JITSU. Her amateur career boasted an impressive undefeated streak of 6-0, showcasing her evolving skills and unwavering determination. Progressing to the professional circuit, she claimed victories in renowned events like California Cage Wars 13 and Invicta FC, solidifying her position as a force to be reckoned with in the MMA scene. However, her defining moment unfolded during Season 30 of “The Ultimate Fighter” (TUF), a prestigious event televised on ESPN+. Juliana’s journey in this competition underscored her exceptional abilities and unwavering perseverance. It culminated in a resounding triumph during the high-stakes final match at the UFC Apex facility on August 6, 2022, crowning her as the champion of TUF Season 30—a pivotal milestone in her illustrious career.

UFC star Juliana “Killer” Miller became the Season 30 Ultimate Fighter champion. Juliana won this title at UFC Vegas 59 by defeating Brogan Walker in the third round with a knockout.

Why Opponents Should Fear Her

Juliana’s opponents should fear her due to her unparalleled skill set, unwavering determination, and remarkable track record. Her combat journey from an undefeated amateur career to claiming victories in major professional events like California Cage Wars 13 and Invicta FC highlights her sheer dominance in the cage. Her remarkable performance in TUF Season 30, culminating in a resounding triumph, solidifies her reputation as a fierce competitor who brings an unmatched level of skill, focus, and determination to every fight.

The nickname “Killer” was given to her by her MMA coach Manolo Hernandez!
