UFC 199 Update: Alex Caceres In To Face Cole Miller

UFC 199

Alex Caceres will meet Cole Miller at UFC 199 next month.

Set for June 4 from The Forum in Los Angeles, Caceres steps in on short notice as a replacement for BJ Penn.

The former UFC champion was removed from the card after a potential violation of the anti-doping policy was reported concerning IV usage by Penn.

Caceres (11-8) got back on track with a decision win over Masio Fullen in January following three consecutive losses. He is 5-3 with one no-contest since 2012.

Miller (21-9) replaced Dennis Siver in the original matchup and is coming off a no-contest in January with Jim Alers. Prior to that, he had won two of three.
