Jim Miller gets UFC 300 wish, fights fellow vet Bobby Green at historic event

Jim Miller will fight at UFC 300, as expected – but not against either of the previously teased opponents. Enter Bobby Green.

As announced Tuesday by UFC CEO Dana White, Miller (37-17 MMA, 26-16 UFC) and Green (31-15-1 MMA, 12-10-1 UFC) will square off at the April 13 pay-per-view view event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Miller, 40, has won five of his most recent six outings. He competed Saturday at UFC Fight Night 235 and submitted Gabriel Benitez. After the fight, Miller name-dropped Paul Felder and Matt Brown, two veterans who displayed mutual interest in the suggested fight.

Pending an out-of-left-field return of Brock Lesnar, Miller will be the only fighter in UFC history to compete on UFC 100, UFC 200, and UFC 300. Miller has been a member of the UFC roster since 2008.

Green, 37, has been scheduled to fight Miller three times prior in the past. All three bouts were canceled due to Green withdrawals. A member of the UFC roster since 2013, Green has won two of his most recent three fights. He most recently competed in December when he was knocked out by Jalin Turner.

With the addition, the UFC 300 lineup includes:

  • Justin Gaethje vs. Max Holloway – for BMF title

  • Zhang Weili vs. Yan Xiaonan – for strawweight title

  • Charles Oliveira vs. Arman Tsarukyan

  • Bobby Green vs. Jim Miller

  • Jiri Prochazka vs. Aleksandar Rakic

  • Calvin Kattar vs. Aljamain Sterling

  • Cody Brundage vs. Bo Nickal
