MMAWeekly is reporting that a lightweight clash between Jim Miller and Gleison Tibau is expected for a UFC Fight Night card currently scheduled for Sept, 15. The card has not been officially announced, and no other details about the card are currently known.
According to the MMAWeekly report, the timing of the fight card indicates that it will likely coincide with the premiere of the twelfth season of “The Ultimate Fighter.” UFC management recently announced that the coaches for this season will be welterweights Georges St. Pierre and Josh Koscheck. The two fighters will compete for St. Pierre’s belt after the show.
After one fight under the IFL banner, Miller made his UFC debut at UFC 89. Since then he has amassed a 6-1 record in the promotion. He has not lost since dropping a decision to Gray Maynard at UFC 96. In his most recent outing, he took a some-what controversial decision over Mark Bocek at UFC 111.
Since dropping back-to-back fights against Tyson Griffin and Joe Stevenson, Tibau has gone 4-1 in the UFC. He is currently riding a two-fight winning streak composed of wins over Josh Neer and Caol Uno.
