The line-up for UFC 208 continues to take shape, as the promotion’s announced that Derrick Lewis will take on Travis Browne, and that Jim Miller will battle Dustin Poirier at the upcoming event.

Lewis (17-4) took on Shamil Abdurakhimov last weekend at UFC FN 102 and stopped the heavyweight in round four. Browne (18-5-1), meanwhile, is coming off a decision loss to Fabricio Werdum in September.

Poirier (20-5) had a four fight winning streak snapped by a Michael Johnson knockout in September. The veteran lightweight Miller (28-8), on the other hand, earned a UD win over Thiago Alves in November.

UFC 208 will take place in Brooklyn, New York on February 11th, and will also feature a bout between Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie for the inaugural women’s 145 title.
