The event takes place September 17 in Omaha, Neb., and can be seen free on SpikeTV. The match-up between these two promising middleweights will likely be on the undercard of the event. Nate Diaz vs. Josh Neer will be the main event of the night.
The Sparta, N.J. native Miller is both the IFL and Cage Fury Fighting Middleweight Champion. He currently trains with UFC lightweight contended Frankie “The Answer” Edgar at Planet Jiu-Jitsu.
Kimmons, who will have the edge in experience against the younger Miller, has won 12 of his last 13 fights, many of them by submission. He is the head instructor at the Kansas City branch of Xtreme Couture. He is 1-0 in the UFC, with his first bout ending when he submitted Rob Yundt in the first round at the most recent “Ultimate Fighter Finale”.
