The UFC is targeting a lightweight matchup between Jim Miller and Michael Chiesa for its Dec. 10 event in Las Vegas.
UFC Tonight reported the bout on Wednesday, although the Las Vegas-based promotion has yet to officially make an announcement. The UFC Fight Night card will take place at The Chelsea at the Cosmopolitan and airs on Fight Pass; it is the first of three consecutive cards the promotion will hold that weekend.
Miller halted a two-fight skid in his last outing, as he earned a split-decision triumph over Danny Castillo at UFC on Fox 16. The 32-year-old New Jersey began his UFC tenure in 2008 and has scored notable triumphs over the likes of Gleison Tibau, Charles Oliveira, Melvin Guillard and Joe Lauzon, to name a few.
Chiesa, meanwhile, has won three of his last four Octagon appearances, including a three-round verdict over Mitch Clarke at UFC Fight Night “Mendes vs. Lamas” in his most recent bout on April 4. “The Ultimate Fighter 15” winner is 5-2 within the Las Vegas-based promotion.
