Lightweights Cole Miller and Dan Lauzon are likely to meet at UFC 108 on January 2 in Las Vegas, according to MixedMartialArts.com, which reports that bout agreements were recently sent out for the matchup.
Miller (15-4) had won back-to-back fights over Jorge Gurgel and Junie Browning before suffering a first-round knockout to Efrain Escudero last month at UFC 103.
Lauzon (12-2), the younger brother of fellow UFC 155-pounder Joe Lauzon and youngest fighter in UFC history when he debuted in a loss to Spencer Fisher in 2006, re-joined the UFC in July after the collapse of Affliction and had been expected to debut in September, but a back injury postponed his return. “The Upgrade” has won eight-straight, including a first-round submission of Bobby Green in January at Affliction: Day of Reckoning.
UFC 108, which has yet to be officially announced, is expected to feature middleweight champ Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort and Rashad Evans vs. Thiago Silva.
