Following Dennis Siver’s withdrawal from UFC 199 due to injury, the promotion has announced that Cole Miller has agreed to face legend BJ Penn.

Miller (21-9)  is coming off a no-contest result against Jim Alers in December, as “Magrinho”” was unable to continue after incurring an accidental eye poke. Miller has gone 2-2, with 1 no contest, in his last five fights.

Penn (16-10-2), meanwhile, hasn’t fought since 2014 when he was stopped by Frankie Edgar. The former lightweight and welterweight champ is 1-3-1 in his last 5 contests.

UFC 199 will take place on June 4th at the Forum in Inglewood, California.
