jim millerExciting UFC lightweights Jim Miller and Mark Bocek will meet at UFC 111 in New Jersey. Both men are currently riding three-fight win steaks and this bout could likely launch one of them into true contender status.

Native New Jersey resident Miller has made himself a name to be taken seriously since joining the big show and has gone 4-1 in the Octagon with his lone loss coming to undefeated Gray Maynard. His improving stand-up skills combined with a slick ground game have made things tough for his opponents like Duane Ludwig who was submitted by Miller at UFC 108 earlier this month.

Opposite Jim will be crafty ground specialist Mark Bocek. The Canadian currently trains with American Top Team and is receiving his post-fight TUF 10 Finale wish for a big name opponent.

UFC 111 features two title fights on the main card with heavyweights Frank Mir and Shane Carwin going at it for the interim belt while welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre and Dan Hardy headline.
