It has been a crazy day for AMA Fight Club fighter Dan Miller, who lost his original opponent for UFC 98, Yushin Okami, to a knee injury. He was then expected to face Team Quest member Ed Herman. Now it appears Herman has been pulled from the spot, and will be replaced by teammate Chael Sonnen for the May 23 middleweight bout.

I'm not a fan of Herman so I'm much happier with Chael...I hope he can bounce back from his loss...although Dan Miller is a tough dude

This fight is cursed. Next thing you know Miller will be out of the fight. Crazy.

This fight just got a bit tougher for me to pick. I still think Miller will grind out a decision but Sonnen is much more of a dangerous opponent than Herman. He has fought top level competition and has a ton of experience on his side. The more I type the more I'm thinking of picking Sonnen.

Exactly.

I think Dan would have struggled with Okami, but Sonnen could turn out to be the ideal opponent.

Easy submission win for Dan Miller.Sonnen is a very good fighter,but has very average submission defense.Miller has an extremely good offensive BJJ game,including the one of the best guiotines in the game.

Miller by sub,late round 1.

WB.
