It'll be a clash of former International Fight League (IFL) veterans inside the Octagon when Matt Horwich and Dan Miller hook 'em up for a middleweight scrap at UFC 90: "Silva vs. Cote" at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Ill., on October 25.

Top division contender Ricardo Almeida -- the man who was originally scheduled to face Horwich in the bout -- has been forced to withdraw from the bout because of an injury, according to MMAWeekly.com.

Miller was among several talented IFL fighters who Zuffa picked up when the promotion folded. He was the last man to hold the IFL title; however, he was never able to defend the belt after defeating Ryan McGivern via submission (kneebar) to win it in May of this year.

A Brazilian jiu-jitsu brown belt, Miller defeated Rob Kimmons via first round submission in his promotional debut at UFC Fight Night 15 last month. Accordingly, this will be his second fight in little more than four weeks.

Horwich –- the first-ever (and former) IFL middleweight champion -– is a mixed martial arts veteran who was on a roll before losing his title to McGivern (the man Miller defeated to win the 185-pound belt) via unanimous decision earlier this year.

"Suave" rebounded with a unanimous decision win over Joey Guel three months later to get back to his winning ways. This will mark his Octagon debut.
