UFC Signs Donald Cerrone-Jim Miller To Fight Night 45

ufc fight night 45

Two regular fight-night bonus winners will meet in Atlantic City later this year, as officials have tabbed lightweights Donald Cerrone and Jim Miller for UFC Fight Night 45.

Set for July 16 from The Revel in New Jersey, Cerrone-Miller will be the main event. The only other bout announced to date features Aljamain Sterling vs. Hugo Viana.

Cerrone (23-6) has posted a 10-3 Octagon record since coming over from the WEC. He earned another bonus when he submitted Edson Barboza last month, while he started off 2014 with a “Knockout of the Night” honor after finishing Adriano Martins.

“I told (UFC president) Dana White I’d fight anyone, anytime,” Cerrone told The Press of Atlantic City. “I am looking forward to coming to a fight town like Atlantic City and throwing down.”

Miller (24-4) is unbeaten in his last four, including back-to-back submission wins over Yancy Medeiros and Fabricio Camoes.

“I’m very excited to fight ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone,” Miller said. “He’s a game fighter and I like tough fights. Jersey is where I made a name for myself and to headline a card basically at home is going to be a very special experience for me.”

    This is a great fight, I would have to lean towards Miller a bit as I think he is a little more well rounded but Cerrone is on a tear also.

    If Cowboy is on top of his game, I think he’ll beat Miller from pillar to post. If he’s not, Cowboy is going to lose, possibly spectacularly. Miller is too good to have an off night. Unfortunately, this fight has significant divisional significance which are the fights that Cowboy usually struggles with.
