UFC 155 is heading to to Las Vegas, Nevada this weekend, and an explosive lightweight bout is taking place between Jim Miller and Joe Lauzon. This bout should be highly entertaining as both fighters have well rounded games and can end fights abruptly.
Jim Miller is coming into this fight off a devastating submission loss to Nate Diaz. Diaz was able to out point Miller on the feet, and locked up a guillotine forcing Miller to tap. Miller will try to get back in the win column this weekend, and he certainly has the skills to do so. Before his loss to Diaz, he was 8-1, and even gave current lightweight champ Ben Henderson a contested affair.
Miller can finish the fight both standing and on the feet, making him one of the most dangerous lightweight in the division.
Joe Lauzon is coming into this fight off a much needed submission win over Jamie Varner. This fight was arguably fight of the year, and Lauzon showed that he still has what it takes to compete with the best of them in the UFC. Lauzon also can end the fight standing and on the feet, which should make his fight with Miller an exciting one from start to finish.
This lightweight bout has Fight Of The Night written all over it. Both fighters are known for pressing the action, and the winner puts their name right in the mix in this division, which is being reigned by Ben Henderson. The loser takes a serious hit in their MMA career, so both fighters will look to get off early in hopes of getting an emphatic finish.
