While his brother Dan prepares for a co-main event fight against Michael Bisping at UFC 114 this weekend, Jim Miller will be prepping for a fight of his own against Gleison Tibau on Sept. 15 at UFC Fight Night 22. No venue or location for the bout has been determined yet.

Rumors had circled that Miller and Tibau would meet at UFC on Versus 2 in Salt Lake City on Aug. 1, but sources close to the negotiations confirmed to MMAWeekly.com on Monday that the bout was currently expected set for Sept. 15.

While the UFC has yet to announce any events for September, UFC Fight Night 22 will serve as the lead-in to “The Ultimate Fighter Season 12″ when it premiers on Spike TV. Featuring coaches Georges St-Pierre and Josh Koscheck, Season 12 of the reality show is currently set to start filming in June.

Miller vs. Tibau is expected to be a featured bout on the UFC Fight Night main card. It is currently the only fight rumored for the September show.

MMAWeekly.com will have more information on the September 15 UFC Fight Night card as it becomes available.
