Jim Miller returns on April 10 for record breaking fight with Joe Solecki

Jim Miller will return to the octagon on April 10 against fellow grappler Joe Solecki. MMA Junkie was first to report the news of the upcoming bout.

Miller (32-15) is a UFC veteran who is currently tied with Donald Cerrone for most fights in UFC history. As soon as his fight begins against Solecki, Miller will have the record all to himself until Cerrone competes on May 8 against Diego Sanchez.

Over his past five fights, Miller has walked away victorious three times. All three wins came by way of submission. Miller was scheduled to fight Bobby Green at UFC 258 in February, but the fight was canceled after Green collapsed following weigh-ins.

Solecki (10-2) earned a UFC contract on Dana White’s Contender Series in July 2019. He made his UFC debut last year by defeating Matt Wiman and then followed that up with a first-round submission victory over Austin Hubbard in August.

A current list of fights booked for April 10 are listed below:

Darren Till vs. Marvin Vettori
Nina Ansaroff vs. Mackenzie Dern
