This one is gonna be good! I can't wait. Winner of this gets a #1 contender fight.
The Lightweight division is stacked, and with the Nate Diaz/Josh Thompson fight announced, there are so many awesome possible fights coming up after this as well..

IMO, anything Healy can do, Jim can do much better, but this is still a helluva fight.
Curious as to where this puts dos Anjos, Khabib and Grant, as the lower half of the top ten/fifteen LWs is pretty open. Personally, I'd have rather seen Healy get a Bocek, Varner or Lauzon to start out his UFC career as I think Miller is going to guzzle him, but this should be a fun fight.
Still not really sure why someone as low on the LW depth chart as Thomson got matched up with Nate coming off a title fight(perhaps a bounceback), but some of these matchups at LW are kinda weird....

Ill take Miller.
Why not Miller vs. Maynard?

Miller looked like such a beasts in his last fight, the dudes seriously got a well rounded game and I think he takes this rather convincingly (sp?)
Id much rather see Maynard/Miller if Pettis is next in line, but this will do.

Miller will probably either win by lopsided decision or sub imo...probably a decision because Pat is pretty tough.
UFC really isn't giving their Strikeforce imports easy first fights are they?

Hell of a fight right here guys.
