A lightweight fight between Tyson Griffin and Jim Miller is expected to take place at UFC 108. The January 2nd extravaganza will be jumping off inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
MMAjunkie.com reported that both fighters have been approached about the contest, with at least one verbally accepting the bout.
Griffin momentarily silenced his critics in his last outing when he dominated Hermes Franca to earn a second-round TKO win. It was his second consecutive win and the first finish he’s had since submitting David Lee with a rear-naked choke at UFC 63, eight fights ago.
Speaking of two-fight win streaks, Miller has bounced back with victories over Steve Lopez and The Ultimate Fighter 6 winner Mac Danzig after suffering a disappointing loss to undefeated Gray Maynard at UFC 96 back in March.
