Jim Miller-Pat Healy Booked For April’s UFC 159 Card

A pair of never-say-die lightweights will take to the Octagon this April, as Jim Miller and Pat Healy have signed to face each other at UFC 159.

The card goes down April 27 from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey – providing Miller with a chance to compete in his backyard.

The New Jersey-born Miller (22-4) rebounded from a loss to Nate Diaz early in 2012 to take a decision over Joe Lauzon. The bloody war ended with Miller improving to 11-3 in the UFC.

Healy (29-16) returns to the Octagon for the first time in years, and carries a six-fight win streak with him. He was scheduled to face Gilbert Melendez twice since last summer, but Melendez was injured and unable to compete.
