Dana White: Jim Miller Ahead of Clay Guida for UFC Lightweight Title Shot

Jim MillerClay Guida’s win over former top-contender Anthony Pettis at The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale wasn’t enough to move “The Carpenter” to the front of the line for the next shot at the UFC lightweight title.

That spot instead belongs to Jim Miller, UFC President Dana White told MMAFighting after the Saturday event, who goes for his eighth-straight win against former WEC champ Ben Henderson at UFC on Versus 5 in August.

With a win, Miller could rematch the winner of a third meeting between current champion Frankie Edgar and challenger Gray Maynard, who are expected to meet as early as September or October and each handed Miller one of his two career losses.
