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 contender.

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 or not.

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.
