Cole Miller seeks his 11th career win inside the Octagon this October when he takes on Mizuto Hirota at UFC Fight Night 97.
Officials announced that featherweight contest, along with strawweights Seo Hee Ham and Danielle Taylor for the October 15 event from the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, Manila, Philippines. The event, which airs live on UFC Fight Pass, features BJ Penn vs. Ricardo Lamas.
Miller (21-10) sports an overall record of 10-8 with the UFC, but is 0-3 since a 2014 win. He does own four “Submission of the Night” bonuses. Hirota (17-7-2) fought Teruto Ishihara to a draw last September in the finals of “Road to the UFC: Japan,” going 0-2 during a run in the promotion in 2013.
Ham (16-7) is a former Jewels champion who is just 1-2 inside the Octagon, while Taylor (7-2) seeks her first UFC win after losing to Maryna Moroz.
