Jim Miller Vs. Ben Henderson Set For UFC On Verus 5

An excellent lightweight match-up has been announced for the UFC On Versus 5 fight card. Jim Miller, coming off a dominant win over Kamal Shalorus at UFC 128, will face Ben Henderson, who notched a win in his UFC debut over grappling standout Mark Bocek. Of all places, The Asbury Park Press has the scoop:

The Whippany-based mixed martial artist is expected to face former World Extreme Cagefighting champion Ben Henderson, sources close to the UFC confirmed to New Jersey Press Media late Tuesday.

The bout is scheduled for "UFC on Versus 5" on Aug. 14 at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wis.

Thus far, here's the known fight card for UFC on Versus 5:

Duane Ludwig vs. Amir Sadollah
Cole Miller vs. T.J. O'Brien
Stephan Bonnar vs. Karlos Vemola
Jim Miller vs. Ben Henderson

Without knowing what UFC brass will do, it's conceivable the winner of this fight could earn a title shot against either the winner of Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard or a title shot-eliminator against the winner of Anthony Pettis vs. Clay Guida.
