Dan Miller Replaces Phil Baroni, Meets John Salter on UFC 118 Prelims

Dan MillerDan Miller has agreed to replace an injured Phil Baroni and will meet fellow middleweight John Salter on the preliminary card of “UFC 118: Edgar vs. Penn 2″ on August 28 in Boston.

MMADiehards first reported the replacement late Tuesday after Baroni withdrew from UFC 118 earlier in the day with an injured collar bone.

Miller (11-4) began his UFC career with three-straight wins, but now needs a victory to keep his spot with the promotion after dropping three in a row, most-recently losing to Michael Bisping at May’s UFC 114.

Salter (5-1) dropped his UFC debut to Gerald Harris in January, but scored a first-round TKO at May’s UFC 113 after veteran Jason MacDonald suffered a broken leg.

The UFC 118 fight card is headlined by a rematch between lightweight champ Frankie Edgar and BJ Penn and also features Randy Couture vs. James Toney and Kenny Florian vs. Gray Maynard.
