New Network, same action. Two lightweight fighters known for their finishes in the octagon look to square off on the premiere of UFC on FX January 20 from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Jim Miller and Melvin Guillard both have plans to rebound from a recent loss after peeling off win-streaks in the division.
Guillard’s five-fight win streak was snapped by the submission game of Joe Lauzon at UFC 136 in Oct. Now the knockout artist, Guillard will have to face another submission specialist in Jim Miller.
Miller looked untouchable in his seven fight win streak, that is until former WEC champion Ben Henderson showed up in the UFC. It was a dominating unanimous decision loss for Miller in Aug. at UFC Live. Henderson has since then defeated top contender Clay Guida to earn himself a title shot against Frankie Edgar.
Also announced for the fight card will be heavyweights Pat Barry vs. Christian Morecraft and welterweights Josh Neer vs Duane Ludwig.
