We’re less than two weeks away from the UFC 258 pay-per-view (PPV) event and the promotion is sneaking in a last-minute lightweight showdown for the Feb. 13 fight card, taking place inside APEX center in Las Vegas, Nevada, with limited fans in attendance.
Jim Miller vs. Bobby Green, according to MMA Junkie.
Miller (32-15, 1 NC) is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Vinc Pichel at UFC 252 last August. “A-10” has been competing for the promotion for over 12 years and at age 37, we may be nearing the end for the New Jersey native, at least in terms of his MMA career.
As for Green (27-11-1), who turned 34 back in September, he crossed over from Strikeforce in early 2013 but has struggled to stay consistent in the crowded 155-pound weight class. “King” was last seen dropping a unanimous decision nod to Thiago Moises at UFC Vegas 12.
UFC 258 will be headlined by the welterweight title fight between Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns. Elsewhere on the card, Jimmie Rivera and Pedro Munhoz collide in the bantamweight division, while Kelvin Gastelum and Ian Heinisch hook ‘em up at 185 pounds.
