Jim Miller vs. Ben Henderson Booked for UFC on Versus 5 on Aug. 14

Jim MillerWith injuries to lightweight champ Frankie Edgar and top contender Gray Maynard putting the lightweight division on hold, Jim Miller isn’t waiting for a possible title shot.

Instead, the rising contender will look to earn his eighth-straight and a shot at the 155-pound belt when he faces former WEC champ Ben Henderson at UFC on Versus 5 on August 14 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the UFC announced late Tuesday.

Miller (20-2) stopped WEC import Kamal Shalorus in March for his seventh-straight win and has only lost to Edgar and Maynard in his 22-fight career, while Henderson (13-2) topped Mark Bocek in his Octagon debut last month following a December loss to Anthony Pettis.

UFC on Versus 5 also includes Stephan Bonnar vs. Karlos Vemola, Amir Sadollah vs. Duane “Bang” Ludwig and Cole Miller vs. TJ O’Brien.
