Both men will look to rebound from recent disappointing performances coming behind strong runs.
Mills (14-5) was most recently brutalized by highly touted prospect Rory MacDonald at UFC 145 in April. However, the Brit was riding five-fight win-streak prior to the bout, which included an promotional debut with a 40-second knockout victory of Chris Cope.
Ludwig (21-13), is currently on a two-fight skid with stoppage losses to Josh Neer and ,most recently, Dan Hardy at UFC 146. Upon returning to the UFC’s welterweight division, “Bang” was able to put together a pair of impressive victories over Nick Osipczak and The Ultimate Fighter 7 winner Amir Sadollah.
While as per usual it remains to be seen, there is a good chance both men are fighting for their jobs at this point.
