UFC Confirms Jim Miller to Fight Paul Felder Next
By FCF Staff
Rising lightweight Paul Felder will fight an established, long time contender in his next bout, as the UFC has announced he’ll fight Jim Miller on April 18th.
The bout will be part of UFC on FOX 15, which will be hosted by the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
Felder (10-0) is coming off a thrilling, spinning backfist knockout of Danny Castillo at UFC 183, after he earned a split decision win over Jason Saggo in October.
Miller (24-5) hasn’t fought since last July, when he was stopped by Donald Cerrone, after scoring submission wins over Yancy Medeiros and Fabricio Camoes. Miller is currently ranked #11 at 155.
UFC on FOX 15 will feature a middleweight fight between Lyoto Machida and Luke Rockhold in the headliner.
