It will be Miller time in Montreal on December 11.
As Jim Miller prepares for his showdown with Charles Oliveira on the card, his brother Dan Miller will also get a shot in Canada as he returns to action to face home countryman Joe Doerksen in a middleweight bout on the show.
The news was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the match-up on Wednesday.
While Dan Miller (12-4) may have seemed on the ropes after losing three fights in a row, nobody could tell the New Jersey fighter that he didn’t belong in the UFC. Always known as an impossibly tough opponent, Miller took the adversity he faced in the losses and turned it into motivation as he defeated John Salter in his last fight to get back to his winning ways.
A product of AMA Fight Club in New Jersey, Miller and his brother Jim have long been considered a great tandem, and this time they will get to fight alongside each other on the UFC 124 card in Montreal.
Looking to get back to his own winning ways will be Canadian fighter Joe Doerksen (46-13) as he tries to recover from a submission loss to C.B. Dollaway at UFC 119 in September. Prior to that fight, Doerksen has racked up 8 wins in a row, and he hopes to find that success again at UFC 124 in December.
The bout between Miller and Doerksen will likely occupy a spot on the undercard for the show headlined by Georges St. Pierre and Josh Koscheck, as the rivals battle for the UFC welterweight title.
