UFC 199: Alex Caceres Steps in to Face Cole Miller
By FCF Staff
Following the recent withdrawal of BJ Penn, Alex Caceres has agreed to step-in and fight Cole Miller at the June 4th, UFC 199 card.
Penn was originally scheduled to fight Miller at the event, but after he disclosed to USADA that he had violated the organization’s policies on IV use, he was removed from the card.
Caceres (11-8) will be fighting for the first time since January, when he decisioned Masio Fullen. The featherweight is 2-3 in his last 5 contests.
Miller (21-9), meanwhile, is coming off a no contest result against Jim Alers in December. The veteran was unable to continue after he received an accidental eyepoke from Alers. Miller is 2-2-1 in his last 5 contests.
UFC 199 will be hosted by the Forum in Inglewood, California.
