Nick Catone had a choice.

Dan Miller, his opponent at UFC 128, was called up to fight Nate Marquardt after Yoshihiro Akiyama withdrew in the fallout from this past week's earthquake in Japan. He was between 205 and 208 pounds and was just about to start his cut to middleweight. He could hold for another fight – UFC matchmaker Joe Silva had concerns he couldn't get another middleweight approved in time – or he could fight a New Jersey fighter all cued up and ready to go.

It was an easy choice.
