“Ultimate Fighter” season nine contestant Mark Miller will make his Strikeforce debut Nov. 7 against Deray Davis on the undercard of Strikeforce on CBS.
MMAWeekly.com first learned of the match-up Tuesday from sources close to Miller.
The Sears Centre Arena in suburban Chicago hosts the live network debut of the promotion, headlined by heavyweights Fedor Emelianenko and Brett Rogers.
Before making his reality show debut, Miller (14-5) had lost two consecutive fights, most recently against UFC newcomer Mike Pierce at SportFight 24 in September 2008. Five months prior, he lost a bid for the welterweight title against Jay Hieron in the now defunct International Fight League.
Davis (5-1-1) made a brief appearance in Bellator Fighting Championshps this year, losing to Jesse Juarez by TKO in May. The loss snapped a four-fight win streak. The 26-year-old fighter currently fights out of Team Corral in Indiana.
