In a recent episode of The Truth Podcast with Vivek Ramaswamy, White highlighted the case of UFC veteran Jim Miller to support the promotion's approach to fighter compensation. Miller, a 40-year-old fighter, is currently on a remarkable winning streak and is slated to compete at UFC 300. White expressed his views, stating:

"We got a guy right now who's 40 years old, and he's on this hot streak, man. His name is Jim Miller. He's been around forever... He's been around since we bought this company, and he's still fighting. And he's on this hot streak right now... He's going to fight on UFC 300."

White continued to emphasize Miller's success, pointing out that despite being considered a journeyman by some, Miller has earned millions of dollars through his UFC career. Jim Miller, known for his appearances at UFC 100 and UFC 200, is set to face Bobby Green at UFC 300 in what will be his 44th bout in the promotion.
