A lightweight battle in the form of Jim Miller vs. Gleison Tibau is in the works for an upcoming UFC event in late summer/early fall at an event and venue to be named, according to a May 3 report from MMA Die Hards.

Miller will be coming into this contest riding an impressive four-fight win streak after suffering his only loss inside the Octagon to Gray Maynard at UFC 96. During that time Miller has knocked off Mac Danzig, Steve Lopez, Duane Ludwig, and most recently Mark Bocek at UFC 111.

Carrying a record of 17-2 with his only losses coming to the aforementioned Maynard and to current UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, a win against Tibau could vault Miller into the upper echelon of the 155 pound division.

Gleison (21-6), fighting out of American Top Team, has reeled off back-to-back wins against Josh Neer at UFC 104 and against Caol Uno at UFC Fight Night 21: "Florian vs. Gomi," and has won four of his last five fights with his only loss coming to Melvin Guillard at The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale last summer.

Prior to his most recent string of success, Tibau struggled competing with some of the tops guys in the division losing to Tyson Griffin at UFC 81 and Joe Stevenson at UFC 86.

Stay tuned to MMAmania.com for a future announcement regarding the date and venue for this 155-pound match-up.
