Jim Miller will get the opportunity to compete in his backyard this April, as he welcomes Pat Healy back to the UFC at UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen. The event goes down April 27 from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
Miller (22-4) is 11-3 in his Octagon career, including a recent win over Joe Lauzon. Miller is from Sparta Township, New Jersey, and continues to call the state home.
Healy (29-16) is riding a six-fight win streak and will be looking to even his all-time UFC mark at 1-1. Healy, who has spent the past few years in Strikeforce, fought for the UFC in 2006. He was defeated by Anthony Torres via first round submission.
