UFC NEWS – Cole Miller Set To Make Featherweight Debut In March Against Steven Siler


American Top Team’s Cole Miller has finally delivered on his promise to drop a weight class and is set to try his hands in the UFC’s featherweight division against Steven Siler in the UFC on FX 2 card.

UFC on FX 2 is set to feature a main event welterweight bout between Martin Kampmann and Thiago Alves. The Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia will play host to the fight card on March 3 of 2012 and will also feature the opening round of the UFC’s flyweight title eliminator tournament.

After a decent run in the UFC’s lightweight division Cole Miller will look to follow the footsteps of other lightweight’s and drop to the UFC’s featherweight division.

He last saw action this past August during the “UFC Live: Hardy vs. Lytle” event where he submitted T.J. Obrien in the second round. The win marked his seventh in ten UFC bouts since signing with the promotion following a stint on The Ultimate Fighter season 5 in 2007.

Siler was seen on the last season of “The Ultimate Fighter”. In the opening elimination round he submitted Cole’s brother, Micah Miller, to earn his spot in the house. He last saw action during the Ultimate Fighter Finale where he was able to dominate Josh Clopton to win the fight via decision.
