Jim Miller’s was quoted as to saying that the WEC lightweights are not as good as the UFC light weights and now he gets to back up his comments as he faces Ben Henderson, the former WEC Lightweight Title Holder.

After putting a beating on Kamal Shalorus at UFC 128 many were calling for Miller to get a crack at the lightweight championship. Miller had run off seven consecutive UFC wins and only Gray Maynard and Frankie Edgar hold wins over him.

The bout is scheduled for “UFC on Versus 5” on August 14th, at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee.

Henderson is coming off an impressively dominant victory over Mark Bocek at UFC 129 and the winner of this fight should be put right in line with the winner of Anthony Pettis vs Clay Guida for a title shot.
