Getting beat by a huge WW shouldn't effect a guys LW standing that much. His other recent loss is to Kim, another huge WW. Both fights he wasn't really dominated, he just couldn't deal with their strength advantages and was out grappled.
The thing is Miller just lost to the champ, so it makes it hard to give him a title shot so fast. I think a rematch would be OK. Bendo did put a beating on him, but Miller was over-committing to submissions and getting punished by elbows for it. If he fights position first, it could be a much different fight.
