Pat Healy vs. Jim Miller on tap for UFC 159 on April 27 in Newark

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

Grindfest! One of these talented 155-pounders is looking to get back in the "mix" at UFC 159 on April 27 in "Dirty Jersey." Who's it gonna be?

The Strikeforce invasion continues!

Pat Healy wanted a crack at the top dogs in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and now he's got one. But you know what they say about being careful what you wish for.

Jim Miller (22-4) is a tough out.

The two lightweight grinders are scheduled to throw hands at the upcoming UFC 159 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which goes down in Miller's backyard of Newark, New Jersey, on April 27, 2013. The soft-spoken home brewer rebounded from his UFC on FOX 3 ass-whoopin' to Nate Diaz by putting on a sensational "Fight of the Night" performance against Joe Lauzon at UFC 155 last month in Las Vegas.

Will he make "Bam Bam" his Pebbles?

Healy (29-16) tied a ribbon around his Strikeforce career by turning away the previously unbeaten Kurt Holobaugh at the "Marquardt vs. Saffeidine" event earlier this month in Oklahoma. The WEC veteran has more than half his wins coming by way of submission.

Who wants it more in "The Garden State?"

UFC 159 will feature a light heavyweight title fight pitting champion Jon Jones against challenger and fellow TUF coach Chael Sonnen. Bitter 205-pound rivals Phil Davis and Vinny Magalhaes have also been scheduled to hook 'em up in "Dirty Jersey."
