Jim Miller vs. Gleison Tibau Likely for September UFC Event

Jim MillerRising UFC lightweights Jim Miller and Gleison Tibau have agreed to square off at a September UFC event, according to MMADiehards.

UFC Fight Night 22, which is expected to air on Spike TV in September ahead of The Ultimate Fighter 12 debut, appears to be a likely possibility to host the 155-pound matchup.

After dropping a decision to lightweight contender Gray Maynard last March, Miller (17-2) has improved to 6-1 in the UFC with four-straight wins over Mac Danzig, Steve Lopez, Duane Ludwig, and most-recently Mark Bocek in March.

Tibau (21-6) has won four of his last five to improve to 7-4 inside the Octagon, dropping a split decision to Melvin Guillard in June before bouncing back with victories over Josh Neer in October and Caol Uno at March’s UFC Fight Night 21.
