A member of Team Pulver on season five of The Ultimate Fighter, a season that pitted his coach Jens Pulver against BJ Penn, Cole Miller will get a chance to face Penn on Saturday, June 4, when he replaces the injured Dennis Siver on the UFC 199 card in Inglewood, California.
In the UFC 199 main event at the Forum, which airs live on Pay-Per-View, Luke Rockhold defends his UFC middleweight title against Chris Weidman. In the co-featured bout, Dominick Cruz defends his UFC bantamweight crown against Urijah Faber.
Unbeaten in three of his last four bouts, a stretch that includes wins over Andy Ogle and Sam Sicilia, American Top Team's Miller has weathered his share of ups and downs over the years, and now can make a statement with a win over UFC Hall of Famer Penn, a two division world champion who is making his first start since retiring after a 2014 loss to Frankie Edgar.
