Rustam Khabilov has been forced to pull out of his upcoming fight with Danny Castillo at UFC on FOX 16. UFC veteran Jim Miller will be stepping in for Khabilov and is set to clash with Castillo in a lightweight bout. UFC announced the swap on Monday.
Miller has suffered consecutive losses at the hands of Beneil Dariush and Donald Cerrone in his last two fights. There was a point in his career where Miller had the potential to become the “Next Big Thing” in his weight class, and he will be looking to regain that momentum when he meets Castillo in Chicago.
Castillo, like Miller, is hoping to get back to his winning ways after losing three of his last five. Who do you think will walk out of the octagon with their hands raised? Who should be the favorite in this bout? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
