According to sources, the promising bantamweight will fight in the Dana White’s Contender Series Show in September. He is a massive talent and can very well be a new star of an already stacked UFC bantamweight division.

Miller has an undefeated record as an amateur as well. He managed to get a 3-0 record during the earlier days of his career, recording two finishes under his belt.

When will Stipe Miocic return to action?

Miocic is considered the greatest heavyweight to compete in the sport of MMA ever. He recently lost his UFC heavyweight title to Francis Ngannou, suffering a devastating knockout loss. There were even rumors that the Cleveland firefighter might consider joining ONE Championship after not being granted an immediate rematch.

Especially considering the fact that Miocic already holds a win over ‘The Predator’ in their first fight, he certainly has the right to claim for a rematch. But, considering that Ciryl Gane is now the interim heavyweight champion, it looks like Miocic will have to fight someone else or opt to sit out until he gets his chance to reclaim the belt.

Fans love to see him fight and UFC faithful will hope that the former champion comes back sooner rather than later. At 39, he doesn’t have a lot of fight left in him. However, it will be a blunder to count the former champion out just yet.
