Jim Miller needs time to heal after enduring several injuries in his UFC 300 fight with Bobby Green.

After becoming the first and only fighter to compete at UFC 100, UFC 200, and UFC 300, the New Jersey native came up short in his bid to get wins on all three cards, suffering a unanimous decision loss to Green. Miller started strong in the opening round, but Green picked up the pace and really started to pour on the punishment as the fight pressed on.

By the end of the third round, Miller’s face was covered in blood from a pair of cuts ­— one above and one below his right eye — and he had to survive a late barrage from Green to prevent a stoppage.

On Monday, Miller revealed the extent of the damage done, which included 23 stitches to close the wounds that Green inflicted upon him.

“The struggle is real,” Miller said on Instagram. “Broke my hand at some point in the first, I think the later half of the round. Broke my toe. I guess I need some milk.”

In his initial post, Miller remained in good spirits despite the loss, which dropped his record to 5-2 over his past seven UFC appearances.

“I like to keep moving forward, regardless of the previous outcome,” Miller wrote. “I can only affect the future challenges. Time to heal up and move on, but at the moment more importantly it’s garden season.”

Even in defeat, Miller extended his record for the most fights in UFC history (44), and he’ll attempt to build on his 26 wins — another all-time record in the UFC — when he books his next fight once he’s healed up.
