Cole Miller vs. Manny Gamburyan scheduled for UFC on FOX Sports 1

A featherweight bout between TUF 5 alumni Cole Miller and Manny Gamburyan has been scheduled for the fight card of UFC on FOX Sports 1. UFC officials announced the bout late Tuesday night. UFC on FOX Sports 1 takes place August 17, 2013 at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. A light heavyweight bout between Chael Sonnen and Mauricio Shogun Rua headlines the night’s stacked main card. After fighting their way out of prolonged slumps, both Miller (19-7) and Gamburyan (12-7) now hope to piece together their first win streak since 2010. A former lightweight, Miller has fought to mixed results thus far since dropping down to the featherweight division. The 29-year-old lost consecutive decisions to Steven Siler and Nam Phan, before submitting Bart Palaszewski with a first-round rear-naked choke at April’s TUF 17 Finale. Gamburyan, meanwhile, continues to struggle with injuries as he hopes to fight for the first time since 2013. The 32-year-old Armenian was first scheduled to fight Chad Mendes in February, and then Hacran Dias in May, but ultimately withdrew from both bouts. He defeated Michihiro Omigawa via unanimous decision last August in his most recent Octagon appearance. The entire updated UFC on FOX Sports 1 fight card can be found below.
