    Jim Miller vs. Nikolas Motta Rescheduled for UFC Fight Night Card on Feb. 19


    After a September bout fell through, Jim Miller
    and Nikolas
    Motta
    have been rebooked for the UFCโ€™s
    Fight Night card slated for Feb. 19
    .

    Iridium Sports Agency, which manages Motta, initially announced the
    pairing. UFC Fight Night takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas
    and is headlined by a lightweight clash pitting Rafael dos
    Anjos
    against Rafael
    Fiziev
    . The initial meeting between Miller and Motta was
    scrapped at UFC Fight Night 192 when Miller had to withdraw due to
    a positive COVID test.

    A 37-time Octagon veteran, Miller snapped a two-bout skid in his
    most recent Octagon appearance, when he knocked out Erick
    Gonzalez
    in the second round at UFC Fight Night 195 this past
    October. The New Jersey native has lost three of his last five
    promotional outings dating back to 2020.

    Motta is a former Cage Fury Fighting Championships title holder who
    signed with the UFC after a decision win over Joseph
    Lowry
    in November 2020. The 28-year-old Brazilian has had his
    debut delayed after multiple opponents have fallen through since
    his victory on the Contender Series. He is 12-3 as a professional
    overall.
