He'll face Conor McGregor...
MMA Junkie reports that featherweight Cole Miller (21-8 MMA, 10-6 UFC) has been replaced by fDiego Brandao (18-9 MMA, 4-2 UFC) against Conor McGregor (14-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 46. The event happens on July 19 at the O2 in Dublin, Ireland (McGregor's home country). It will likely stream in the US on UFC Fight Pass.
Miller was forced out of the fight due to torn ligaments in his hand. He's currently wearing a full cast.
Dana White said: "Diego Brandao is explosive and a well-rounded fighter. This should be a war."
This is McGregor's first fight since he tore his ACL in a victory against Max Holloway last August and had to go into rehab. Likewise, Brandao suffered an injury that forced him out of last week's The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 Finale.
