A featherweight showdown has been added to the UFC’s return to Boston as Cole Miller takes on Manny Gamburyan. The UFC on FS1 1 pairing was announced on UFC Tonight.
Miller snapped a two-fight losing streak this past April at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale when he defeated Bart Palaszewski via submission. His opponent, Gamburyan, snapped a three-fight losing streak last August and has struggled with injuries over the last year. The Ultimate Fighter 5 finalist is aiming to win two UFC fights in a row for the first time since his first stint with the UFC.
