The UFC has confirmed a couple of things regarding their fifth show on Versus. Shortly after announcing the Bradley Center in Milwaukee would host their debut in Wisconsin, the company told the New Jersey Press Media former WEC lightweight champ Ben Henderson would face Jim Miller in the August 14th event.
Henderson posted an impressive unanimous decision win over Mark Bocek at UFC 129 last month. Bendo holds a 13-2 record overall.
Miller is quietly climbing up the 155-pound totem pole. He holds an underrated 20-2 professional mark, including seven straight inside of the Octagon.
As of right now, the lightweight contest is most significant bout rumored for the event. We’ll see how the rest of the roster rounds out as game time approaches.
Versus will broadcast the card live beginning at 9PM ET/6PM ET.
Here are the athletes expected to participate in the freebie fight card:
T.J. O’Brien vs. Cole Miller
Stephan Bonnar vs. Karlos Vemola
Duane “Bang” Ludwig vs. Amir Sadollah
Jim Miller vs. Ben Henderson
