Two new additions to the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s lightweight roster will square off at UFC 89 in Birmingham, England as Jim Miller is set to do battle with David Baron, as confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the fight.



Both Miller and Baron just recently signed with the UFC and this should be a fast-paced fight between two of the brightest rising stars in the sport.



Jim Miller almost had his UFC debut earlier this year in a bout against Marcus Aurelio, but his existing contract with the now defunct International Fight League (IFL) prevented the move.



Now Miller steps in to face David Baron, another top fighter brought in from abroad by the UFC to expand its international talent pool.

these two guys are actually pretty solid and should make for a good fight. miller has one career loss to frankie edgar, baron has fought gomi and beat mach sakurai, as good of a matchup as you can see for guys in their debut.

Very good matchup, no idea who to pick. It's exciting that the UFC is bringing in all this new talent.

This has Hot Bout written all over it, Jim's Grappling is Great and actually has some Great Head Kicks. He Kicked a piece of Frankie Edgar's ear off in their Fight. Dave was brought in to lose against Mach but proved wrong. His Solid Striking ad Grappling should get him a close Decision Win.
