MMA Junkie is reporting that American Top Team fighter and TUF 5 contestant Cole Miller will take on BJJ black belt and TUF 2 contestant Jorge Gurgel at UFC 86.
Miller is coming off a loss to Jeremy Stephens via TKO at UFC Fight Night 12 while Gurgel is coming off a win over John Halverson at UFC 82 in March.
With all the rumors swirling around about the UFC cutting down its roster, preliminary matches like this one will be interesting to keep an eye on. Will a loss in a preliminary fight mean that you’re cut? Only time will tell, but preliminary matches are going to mean a lot more in the coming months than they ever have before.
