Dan Miller to welcome Strikeforce’s Jordan Mein to the octagon
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.
