A new lightweight battle...
UFC officials announced that UFC lightweight fighter Jim Miller will face former Strikeforce competitor Pat Healy at UFC 159. The fight will be held in Miller's home turf of Newark, New Jersey. Miller is coming off a win over Joe Lauzon in a Fight of the Year candidate at UFC 155. Healy won his last six fights in Strikeforce before the promotion was recently dissolved and was 7-1 overall in the promotion. Healy was twice scheduled to face Gilbert Melendez for the Strikeforce lightweight title, but the fight fell through due to injury for Melendez.
