Jim Miller vs. Nikolas Motta Rescheduled for UFC Fight Night Card on Feb. 19



After a September bout fell through, Jim Miller and Nikolas Motta have been rebooked for the UFC’s Fight Night card slated for Feb. 19.

Iridium Sports Agency, which manages Motta, initially announced the pairing. UFC Fight Night takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and is headlined by a lightweight clash pitting Rafael dos Anjos against Rafael Fiziev. The initial meeting between Miller and Motta was scrapped at UFC Fight Night 192 when Miller had to withdraw due to a positive COVID test.

A 37-time Octagon veteran, Miller snapped a two-bout skid in his most recent Octagon appearance, when he knocked out Erick Gonzalez in the second round at UFC Fight Night 195 this past October. The New Jersey native has lost three of his last five promotional outings dating back to 2020.

Motta is a former Cage Fury Fighting Championships title holder who signed with the UFC after a decision win over Joseph Lowry in November 2020. The 28-year-old Brazilian has had his debut delayed after multiple opponents have fallen through since his victory on the Contender Series. He is 12-3 as a professional overall.
