UFC officials today announced Conor McGregor (14-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and Cole Miller (21-8 MMA, 10-6 UFC) will get it on at the July 19 event at Dublin’s O2 Arena.
Cole Miller has won his three out of four fights. He beat Bart Palaszewski via rear naked choke back in April of 2013, he lost to Manvel Gamburyan via unanimous decision in August of 2013. However, he began his two fight winning streak with a win over Andy Ogle via unanimous decision in October and then his latest win came over Sam Sicilia via rear naked choke back in January.
Conor McGregor tries to continue his ten fight winning streak and get that very elusive 11 fight win streak against Cole Miller. In his last four fights this is how his history goes. He beat Dave Hill via rear naked choke back in June of 2012 to win the vacant Cage Warriors FC Featherweight Championship.
His next fight was for another weight class championship against Ivan Buchinger via knockout back in December of 2012. He left the promotion to make his UFC debut with a knockout of the night win over Marcus Brimage in April of 2013. Finally, he beat Max Holloway via unanimous decision in August.
