UFC 258, set to go down in just under two weeks’ time, has a late addition with some lightweight veterans throwing down.
The promotion’s iron man, Jim Miller, will face Bobby Green at the event. MMA Junkie was first to report the news.
Miller (32-15, 1NC) last competed in August at UFC 252, losing a unanimous decision against Vinc Pichel. In his last five fights, the longtime UFC staple is 3-2. Miller makes history every time he steps in the octagon at this point, with 36 fights inside the octagon under this belt. That ties him with Donald Cerrone with the most in UFC history.
Bobby Green (27-11-1) had a solid 2020, winning three of his four bouts during the pandemic. He put together a three-fight win streak over Clay Guida, Lando Vannata, and Alan Patrick, before dropping a decision to Thiago Moises in October.
