I favor Miller to win but I also don't think he'll blow Healy out of the water. Healy will come to fight. It also depends what his contract situation is. If his Strikeforce contract was transferred over to the UFC then I believe Healy is atleast owed a certain amount of fights. I'd be very surprised he loses 1 fight and gets cut.

Depending on how he looks, yeah I can see him getting cut. I'm not saying he should be, just that I think a lot of the SF fighters are fighting for a spot on the roster.

Pat is taller and is also one of the biggest 155ers coming down from 183-185 six weeks out. He has about an inch of reach on Miller so he has that going for him. I'm not sure if he's going to be able to bully Miller up against the cage though. I think it's going to be entertaining as funk and I'll be rooting for Pat no question!

This is a tough fight for Pat, but it's also the perfect fight for us. Healy has improved so much, and this fight will speak volumes about where he deserves to be in the UFC lightweight division.I still hope this means Joe is gonna fight TJ.

I would say really just in the Lauzon fight. Not sure if it was just same skill set with much more aggression and close elbows, but, yeah, he looked like a different fighter. I think that similar aggression and Miller's speed will be too much for Healy. Grappling will be cancelled out and Jim wins the striking despite size difference with that long reach of his.
