A lightweight bout has been added to the upcoming UFC 208 card as Dustin Poirier will take on Jim Miller at the event.
Mark La Monica announced the bout.
UFC 208 will be held on February 11, 2017, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
The event is expected to feature the inaugural UFC Women’s Featherweight Championship bout between former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie.
Poirier (20-5 MMA) was on a tear since moving up to lightweight going 4-0 following a TKO loss to Conor McGregor at UFC 178. Poirier defeated Bobby Green, Joseph Duffy, Yancy Medeiros and Carlos Diego Ferreira before losing to Michael Johnson last time out at UFC Fight Night 94.
Miller (28-8-1 MMA) is riding a career resurgence of late, earning three victories in his last three contests. Wins over Thiago Alves, Joe Lauzon and Takanori Gomi has the UFC vet climbing the 155lb rankings.
