UFC NEWS – Guillard vs. Miller In UFC on FX Main Event Set


UFC officials took to twitter this afternoon to announce the main event for the first ever UFC on FX event set for January 20 and it comes in the form of a three-round bout between Melvin Guillard and Jim Miller.

UFC on FX 1 is set to take place on January 20th at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. The first ever event on the station will air live and free to channel subscribers. In the main event a lightweight tilt between top contenders Melvin Guillard and Jim Miller will go down and rebound one of the two from recent losses.

Guillard was last seen at UFC 136 getting dominated by Joe Lauzon and tapped out in just 47-seconds of the very first round. In the bout he was staggered by strikes and taken to the mat where he was eventually submitted by a rear naked choke. The loss snapped a five-fight win streak and halted talks of a title shot for the Team Jackson-Winklejohn fighter.

His opponent, Jim Miller also suffered a similar fate recently during the UFC on Versus 5 show where he was put against Benson Henderson and taken out via unanimous decision after a grueling three-round. Prior to the Henderson defeat Miller was the divisions next contender.
