Rising lightweight Joe Solecki will get his third UFC test in a bout against veteran Jim Miller on April 10th. The new matchup for UFC’s “Fight Night” card was first reported by Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie.
The fight has joined a card that does not have a confirmed location currently.
Solecki will attempt to continue with the success he has gained through two UFC fights. He earned his second UFC win in August, submitting Austin Hubbard with a rear naked choke in the first round.
His previous fight saw him earn a decision victory against Matt Wiman in late 2019.
Miller gets the matchup against Solecki after losing a decision to Vinc Pichel in his most recent appearance. Miller was scheduled to compete in mid-February against Bobby Green, although it was later cancelled after Green collapsed backstage.
