Pat Healy mixing it up with Jim Miller at UFC 159

Jim MillerLightweight Pat Healy dealt with a ton of disappointment over the past few months, seeing a pair of title-shots in Strikeforce fall apart when Gilbert Melendez ducked out for health-related reasons while also being forced to accept a match-up on short notice if hoping to be brought over to the UFC. However, Healy was able to overcome the adversity and is now poised for perhaps the biggest bout of his career.

According to the UFC, Healy has been booked for a match-up with Jim Miller at UFC 159. Given that the highly-touted Miller hails from New Jersey where the card is being held, the bout should also give Healy an opportunity to showcase his skills on the PPV portion of the lineup.

The 29-year old Healy has emerged from the ring with his hand raised in six straight scraps and nine of his last ten. He has compiled a 29-16 record in his career with 21 finishes and past wins over the likes of Paul Daley, Dan Hardy, and Carlos Condit.

Meanwhile, the 22-4 Miller is one of the division’s most successful stars. He was last seen coming out victorious in a Fight of the Night winner against Joe Lauzon this past December, the eleventh triumph of his career inside the Octagon.

    Damn, that’s about as tough of a draw as you get for your first fight. Hopefully there will be some more Bam Versus Wild leading up to this fight.
