Mein vs Miller added to WW heavy Ufc 158

I like Dan Miller, his story, his brother, but have to go with Mein on this one (Not just cause he is Canadian). Mein has vicious elbows..hopefully we can see the highlights continue,

Awesome for Mein, he deserves to be in the Ufc, I was worried he would be on the fringe despite his success...

The 5th WW bout added, this one likely is a prelims.

Nate Marquardt (post Jan 12 win) already stated he hopes to make this card as well, this could be the unofficial WW tournament for the UFC (An all WW card, similar to the all HW Ufc 146.

Erick Silva also wants to fight in March,

Main Card

Welterweight Championship bout: Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz
Welterweight bout: Jake Ellenberger vs. Johny Hendricks
Welterweight bout: Carlos Condit vs. Rory MacDonald

Welterweight bout: Patrick Cote vs. Bobby Voelker
Welterweight bout: Jordan Mein vs. Dan Miller

"Another Strikeforce fighter is ready to make his UFC debut, as Jordan Mein (26-8 MMA, 0-0 UFC) now faces Dan Miller (14-6 MMA, 6-5 UFC) at UFC 158.

The Canadian Press first reported the booking, which adds two more welterweights to a card already loaded with key 170-pound matchups. ( subsequently confirmed the bout with sources close to the fighters.

UFC 158 is set for March 16 at Montreal's Bell Centre. The card is headlined by the welterweight title defense of Georges St-Pierre against Nick Diaz and also features a rematch between Rory MacDonald and Carlos Condit, the only fighter to beat him, and bout between welterweight title contender Johny Hendricks and Jake Ellenberger.

Miller fights for the second time at 170 pounds. The former middleweight and brother of top UFC lightweight Jim Miller competed 10 times in the octagon as a 185-pounder before dropping to welterweight this past June for a much-needed third-round submission win over Ricardo Funch. The result snapped a two-fight losing streak and preserved the 31-year-old's spot in the promotion.

Meanwhile, "Young Guns" Mein makes his UFC debut at 23 years old. The Canadian fought three times under the Strikeforce banner and earned victories over Tyler Stinson and Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos but lost a split decision to a then-undefeated Tyron Woodley. Mein fought in November at Score Fighting Series 7 and earned a TKO victory over six-time UFC veteran Forrest Petz.

Overall, Mein is 8-1 in his past nine appearances.

That beating he laid on Cyborg was awesome, Mein is a good prospect but his wrestling needs work and that's quite crucial in the UFC's Welterweight division.

He should be able to out-strike Miller though, Mein UD.
