With Thiago Tavares recently bowing out of a UFC 103 preliminary card matchup due to an injury, Jim Miller (14-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) will now fight UFC newcomer Steve Lopez (12-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC).

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned from sources close to the event that both fighters have agreed to the contest, and bout agreements are expected to be distributed shortly.

This Lopez guy's got cred. He's fought and beaten a guy named The Gooch. You can't make that up.

Can't go against Miller, I'd be suprised if he lost.

LOL he did beat someone named "The Gooch". If thats not the worst thing I've ever heard, I don't know what is.

Taking Miller by savage beatdown.

The Gooch is someone you dont wanna mess with either. He made The Gooch retire after a minute and 52 seconds of pounding.
