An injury sustained during training has forced lightweight competitor Frankie Edgar out of a scheduled bout vs. Matt Wiman during next Wednesday’s UFC Fight Night 16: “UFC Fight for the Troops” event.
Replacing Edgar will be another New Jersey based fighter, up and coming lightweight prospect Jim Miller.
FiveOuncesOfPain.com learned of the news exclusively after speaking with a source close to one of the fighters.
Miller currently trains out of the AMA Fight Club and possesses an impressive mixed martial arts record of 12-1-0. Miller holds victories over Nuri Shakir, Chris Liguori, and Bart Palaszewski. Incidentally, his sole loss came against Edgar, the fighter he is replacing.
