Dan Miller to welcome Strikeforce's Jordan Mein to the octagon

by Ken Pishna | source: mmaweekly.com

The UFC is going to be prepared come hell or high water if someone falls out of the UFC 158 welterweight title bout between Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz.

The promotion on Friday added its fifth welterweight bout to the card, bringing Strikeforce transfer Jordan Mein in to face UFC veteran Dan Miller.

Mein (26-8) enters the Octagon off back-to-back wins over Forrest Petz and Tyler Stinson. His only loss in his last nine trips to the cage was of the split decision variety against Strikeforce title contender Tyron Woodley.

He faces no easy task in his UFC debut, stepping in the Miller, who has spent the past four and a half years fighting in the Octagon.

Please be joking. Palhares almost got finished and should have been docked multiple PTs for flagrant fouls

Did you watch the Maia fight? Because, fighting with a hand he broke in the first round, Miller still went into the third round tied 19-19 on two cards and promptly dropped Maia in the opening stages of the third. I don't know about you, but generally when the third round is underway and a fighter is currently on pace to lose the decision like Maia was at that point, I don't consider him as being in the middle of an easy victory.
