A pivotal lightweight contest pitting Jim Miller against Benson Henderson is being targeted for UFC Live 5.

The news was first reported by the Asbury Park Press on Tuesday; UFC officials confirmed the booking shortly thereafter. Going down Aug. 14 at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, UFC Live 5 is also expected to feature a light heavyweight confrontation between Stephan Bonnar and Karlos Vemola, as well as a welterweight scrap pitting Duane Ludwig against Amir Sadollah. The event will air live on cable network Versus.

So stoked for this fight.

I like MIller because he always finds a way to win but Henderson's gonna be his toughest opponent since Maynard, and certainly his most tenacious opponent so far. Wouldn't be overly shocked if Henderson pulls it out, and I'd love to see these guys go 5 rounds (if there's no stoppage at the end of 3).

I don't know if I should be very disappointed or very excited. I like both of these guys and I'd hate to see one of them lose.


BUT.. If I'm forced to choose, then I'm going with my boy J Miller by domination.

WAR MILLERRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry for the Capslock yelling guys. Very amped!

I was waiting for my boy Miller to get something going. And what a fight they picked! Miller has been taking on all comers, non-stop! Jim and Dan are ballsy, ballsy dudes! Anyone, anywhere, anytime.

I am pretty bummed, like FastKnockout, that Bendo is his opponent. I really, really like "Smooth", and I personally was very impressed with his UFC debut. He seems like a great guy! Great personality, great skills, and damn near impossible to finish. I really wanted him to close out the WEC as the last Lightweight champ.

I am really sad someone has to lose this fight!

Wow, unreal fight. Bendo looked good against Bocek and Miller is a beast. I'm going to pick Miller by decision. Should be a hell of a fight.

He just tapped an excellent ground specialist who was an undefeated prospect in under 2 minutes and most recently he tko'd another undefeated guy.

i like it, and i dislike it......
mainly cuz of what just happened with Edgar/Maynard.

we're talking about 2 of the TOP 3 lightweight prospects in the UFC now, (Pettis got screwed IMO, I think Pettis is the better FIGHTER, but that doesn't necessarily mean he is going to beat Guida). And if any of these 3 lose their next fight (especially Pettis), that puts them back down the ladder for at least 2 to 3 fights. i know this may not make sense, but I don't want another situation where they pick contenders just off of who is available to fight at the time,make sure they are without a doubt the best few the champ can face in a row. for example, even if miller beats bendo, and then say frankie beats miller, there is no way bendo will get the fight if he hasn't won at least a few fights since.....

just to avoid serious flaming, where i started that arguement is not where i finished it...

i guess i'm just like everyone else in the sense that i don't want either to lose so i can see them fight for the belt

The more i think about it, i really like this. If miller wins he has 2 get a title shot next. If ben gets the upset he could b one win way from getting a shot at the strap. I will probably pick miller by UD, but i am pulling for bendo big time.

LETS GO!!!

Pettis/Guida and Henderson/Miller are going to say some very revealing things about the WEC. Personally, I'm picking against both Pettis and Henderson, but I'm rooting for Pettis without question.
