Cape Town - A rematch of one of the UFC's most memorable fights is set
for UFC on FOX 21 in Vancouver, Canada.
Two men coming off knockout victories at UFC 200 will do
battle again as Joe Lauzon and Jim Miller will get the chance to top their UFC
155 clash that became an instant classic and was a 2012 fight of the year
Miller walked away from the bloody encounter with a unanimous
decision victory and Lauzon will now get the chance to even the score.
The UFC announced the match-up late on Monday.
Lauzon (26-11) is coming off of a quick but devastating
stoppage of Diego Sanchez at UFC 200 earlier this month.
The post fight bonus
King has won four of his last six, stopping Michael Chiesa, Takanori Gomi
and Diego Sanchez. One of the most exciting fighters on the UFC's roster, Lauzon
always manages to entertain the fans regardless of whether he walks away the winner
Miller (26-8-1) was also victorious at UFC 200 after making
quick work of Takanori Gomi. Once considered a threat at the 155-pound title,
Miller has found himself at stand still of late as he has dropped four of his
last six with his only victories coming over Gomi and Danny Castillo.
The two men have a combined 31 submission
victories to their names which is usually recipe for a stand up war and if the
first meeting between the two is anything to go by then this second fight is
sure to deliver some fireworks.
