UFC Announces Jan. 15th, Atlanta Card, Miller-Sicilia, Dillashaw-Easton Booked
By FCF Staff
Not only has the Ultimate Fighting Championship announced that it’s returning to Atlanta for a January 15th card, but the promotion has confirmed two bouts for the event.
At featherweight, Cole Miller will battle Sam Sicilia, and in a bantamweight bout TJ Dillashaw will fight Mike Easton.
Miller (20-8) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Andy Ogle at UFC Fight Night 30 last month.
In Sicilia’s (12-3) last outing at UFC FN 32 last weekend, he quickly stopped Rony “Jason” with ground-and-pound strikes.
Dillashaw (8-2) will be looking to rebound from a split decision loss he suffered versus Raphael Assuncao at UFC FN 29 in October.
Easton (13-3) is also coming off a split decision defeat, as he lost by that margin to Brad Pickett at a UFC on FUEL TV card in April.
The January 15th event is expected to be UFC FN 35 and will be hosted by Atlanta’s Duluth’s Arena at Gwinnett Center.
