Jim Miller has just found out who his next opponent will be at UFC 159 in Newark, NJ. Miller, who recently rebounded from a loss to Nate Diaz with a UFC 155 win over Joe Lauzon, will welcome Pat Healy to the Octagon. Healy will put his six-fight win streak on the line and will take his recent Strikeforce title frustrations out on the former UFC Lightweight contender. Healy was to receive a title shot in Strikeforce, but former champion Gilbert Melendez had to pull out from consecutive title shots for “Bam Bam” before the company recently folded.
Jon Jones will defend the UFC Light Heavyweight title against Chael Sonnen in the April 27th main event.
