Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight veteran Jim Miller recently turned his Twitter account into a Craig’s List ad for potential opponents, since promotion matchmaker Sean Shelby forgot to return his calls.
The search is over as Francisco Trinaldo has agreed to bang at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 119 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1, taking place Sat., Oct. 28, 2017, inside Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Miller (28-10) is trying to slam the brakes on a two-fight skid, while Trinaldo (21-5) watched his seven-fight win streak go up in smoke in a recent submission loss to top contender Kevin Lee.
Also getting in on the UFC Fight Night 119 action is bantamweight power puncher John Linker (29-8), who looks to rebound from his TJ Dillashaw loss by turning away the 10-3-1 Marlon Vera, winner of three straight.
UFC Fight Night 119 will be headlined by the return of former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida, who collides with middleweight stalwart Derek Brunson in the five-round main event.
