Manny Gamburyan to Meet Cole Miller at UFC on FOX Sports1 1 in Boston

By JAKE CHASTAIN

| It was announced last night (June 11th) on UFC Tonight on FUEL TV that the organization has added a featherweight bout to its August 17th debut on FOX Sport 1. This fight will likely be the 13th and last installment to the card in Boston.

Manny Gamburyan (12-7), after defeating Michihiro Omigawa in August of last year, has had some injuries problems as of late. After being scheduled twice this year Manny has had to withdraw from his fights at UFC 157 and UFC on FX 8 due to injury. Gamburyan will be competing in his first in almost a year and will have his hands full with Miller.

Cole Miller (19-7) is a versatile UFC vet that will come into the fight riding high coming off of his submission victory over Bart Palaszewski at the TUF 17 Finale in April. That fight snapped a two-fight losing skid and Miller will be looking to string together back-to-back wins with a victory over Gamburyan in Boston.

UFC on FOX Sports1 1 is scheduled to be headlined by a light heavyweight bout between Chael Sonnen and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
