    Dan Miller's son finally gets his kidney transplant!!

    Post  Anfields5thKing on Sat Aug 25, 2012 5:02 am

    This is fantastic news. Apparently Dan pulled out of his 152(now 151) fight and people thought he was injured, Not so.

    From Yahoo! Sports

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/dan-miller-happily-steps-off-163947187--mma.html

    With all the madness surrounding the UFC 151 cancellation, it’s easy to overlook that there is more going on in the world of MMA.

    Case in point, UFC welterweight Dan Miller has been removed from the UFC 152 fight card slated for Sept. 22 in Toronto, but this time, it’s a good thing.

    Miller hasn’t run into any licensing issues or suffered any sort of injury. In fact, Miller stepped off the card because of a positive turn of events for his son, Danny Jr.

    Danny was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease (PKD) shortly after he was born. He has been undergoing dialysis treatments several times a week since the initial diagnosis.

    In the meantime, the family has been taking the necessary steps to move Danny towards a much needed kidney transplant. Finally, after all their efforts and a long time waiting, Danny is going to get the kidney transplant surgery that he so needs. A representative from Miller's camp confirmed the news to MMAWeekly.com.

    Dubbed the “toughest Miller of them all" by his uncle, UFC lightweight Jim Miller, Danny needs a full camp surrounding him for this next fight. So his dad, in this case fortunately, won’t be fighting in the Octagon when the UFC returns to Toronto next month. He’ll be in Danny’s corner instead.

    The surgery is quite expensive, in the six figures range, and Danny will need ongoing medications that are expected to run into the thousands of dollars each month for at least the first year following the surgery.

    If you would like to help Danny and his parents with the financial burden, please go to FundaFighter.com to make a donation on Dan Miller’s page.

    Miller’s UFC 152 opponent, Sean Pierson, is expected to remain on the fight card with an opponent yet to be determined.

    I would hope that Zuffa will pay the medical bills. They have done it before for people unconnected to Zuffa and the Miller's have given the UFC great service over the years. It would be good to see Zuffa give back.

    Great news, always good when things have A happy ending. 152 is still 152 by the way Anfield, 151 is just being known as the 'lost event'

    Its about time someone has a reason to drop out of a card that isn't due to injury! Great news for him and his family. Very happy to see it.

    Oh, that's a bit of a bizarre way of doing things.

    I know, it's so they wouldn't have to alter any of the promotional stuff happening for events. Cheaper to keep it the way it is.
