UFC Fight Night 45: Cerrone vs Miller Predictions- Kamikaze Overdrive MMA

Scott Johnson

At a rare Wednesday night event, two surging Lightweights will meet in the main event of UFC Fight Night 45. Donald Cerrone has won 3 consecutive bouts and re-inserted himself into the title contender conversation once again. Jim Miller is undefeated in his last 4 and has only lost 1 time over his last 6 fights.

While Cerrone challenged for the WEC title, neither he or Miller have been able to earn a shot at UFC gold. Both have had multiple opportunities to earn that signature victory over another top contender, but have come up short each time. A win here may not grant either man a direct shot at the winner of champ Anthony Pettis and Gilbert Melendez, but it will move them within arms reach in the UFC’s most stacked division.

Remaining in the Lightweight division, Edson Barboza looks to rebound from a submission setback against the aforementioned ‘Cowboy when he battles the always entertaining Evan Dunham. The American is also coming off a submission defeat against Cerrone and has slipped down and out of the divisional rankings.

Also on the main card Rick Story returns to action, John Lineker meets Alp Ozkilic, Joe Proctor ties up with Justin Salas, and Lucas Martins fights in his third weightclass since joining the UFC.
