UFC 199: BJ Penn Now Faces Cole Miller In June

UFC 199

BJ Penn’s return fight will still take place this June at UFC 199, as “The Prodigy” meets Cole Miller.

Miller steps in for Dennis Siver, who was injured and forced out of the planned bout.

Penn (16-10-2) is looking to earn his first official UFC win since he knocked out former champion Matt Hughes in 2010. The former two-division champ moved his camp to Jackson-Wink MMA earlier this year upon deciding to compete again.

Miller (21-9) is 4-4 with one no-contest in his last nine bouts. The no-contest was also his most recent, which took place vs. Jim Alers in December.

The fight change was first reported on “UFC Tonight.”
