Despite numerous reports, New Jersey native Dan Miller will not be fighting Team Renzo Gracie fighter Dave Branch at UFC 128 in Newark, N.J., in March.
“The fight was never offered,” AMA Fight Club head trainer Mike Constantino told MMA DieHards. While the situation could change, Constantino does not believe Miller will be on the New Jersey card.
Miller is coming off of a split decision victory over Joe Doerksen earlier this month at UFC 124. After a three fight skid with losses to Michael Bisping, Demian Maia and Chael Sonnen, Miller is now riding a two fight winning streak.
Meanwhile, Dan’s brother, Jim, will be fighting on home turf at the March 19 event. The news of his lightweight bout with Kamal Shalorus at UFC 128 was reported earlier today by MMA Weekly.
