I personally think Oliveira completely disrespected Jim Millers BJJ Black Belt and paid for it.

Don't sleep on your opponents Mr. Cocky.
While I don't agree with the cocky part, I agree with everything else. I don't think he acted that way out of cockiness, I think he just thought he wasn't in trouble. Miller kept working for that toe hold and Oliveira was comfortable there, the second Miller changed to that knee bar is a different story though.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming.
