Cole Miller Remains On UFC 199 Card, Faces Alex “Bruce Leeroy” Caceres

Alex Caceres will replace BJ Penn and meet Cole Miller next month at UFC 199.

Penn was removed from his planned Octagon return after a potential USADA violation was disclosed by the former UFC champion.

Caceres (11-8) snapped a three-fight losing skid in January with a decision win over Masio Fullen. The former Ultimate Fighter competitor had gone unbeaten in his previous five fights before the skid, winning four of those.

Miller (21-9) is 2-1 with one no-contest over his last four fights. He was stepping in for Dennis Siver as a replacement to meet Penn.

UFC 199 takes place June 4 from The Forum in California. Luke Rockhold defends his middleweight title against Michael Bisping in the main event.

FOXSports.com first reported the change.
