Default Jim Miller vs. Strikeforce import Pat Healy booked for UFC 159

Officials on Tuesday night announced the forthcoming octagon debut of Pat Healy (29-16 MMA, 0-1 UFC), who will square off with top-shelf lightweight Jim Miller (22-4 MMA, 11-3 UFC) at UFC 159.



UFC 159 takes place April 27 at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

It's not yet known whether Miller vs. Healy will air on the event's pay-per-view main card, which follows prelims on FX and Facebook.


Dont really like this fight, miller dominates in my opinion.

Both s****py guys that look somewhat similar. Makes sense.

I would like to see TJ Grant vs Jim Miller. I wouldn't mind seeing Grant vs Hioki either. What does that have to do with Healy? Ok, nothing. Alright, I'll tie it in.

I would like to see the winner of Miller and Healy face the winner of Grant and Hioki.

TJ Grant should fight Dos Anjos

Miller should be matched up with someone much better than Healy.

It is still to soon for him to go for the title shot specially after he got brutalized by Bendo not to long ago so he needs some building up to do

Should be a solid fight but Miller wins clearly IMO. I see him as a much better striker and his jiujitsu is a few steps above Healy's. Can Miller make 145 ? Would love to see him down there.

Id favour Jim here but dont see why he is the clear favorite. He takes more shots to the face than Tito's wife and cuts up easily...Jim is a southpaw but is still giving up a lot of experience in striking, Team Quest guys are know for their heavy right hands, could be a game changer...and Jim may be drawn into a slug fest before his grappling experience comes into play. I think Jim takes this, but it is a lot closer than most people think imo..
