Jordan Mein moves to the UFC, meets Dan Miller at UFC 158 in Montreal

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

The welterweight match ups continue to stack up for UFC 158 as the most recent addition to the March 16 fight card will see Strikeforce import Jordan Mein make his UFC debut against 11-fight Octagon veteran Dan Miller.

Add another intriguing welterweight contest to the UFC 158 fight card that is already stacked with 170-pound talent.

One of the most talented prospects in all of mixed martial arts (MMA) will make his Octagon debut in front of his home country this March when former Strikeforce fighter Jordan Mein takes on longtime veteran Dan Miller.

Neil Davidson of The Canadian Press first reported the match up Friday evening via Twitter. UFC officials later confirmed the 170-pound affair.

Mein (26-8) has been making waves outside of the UFC for the past few years, defeating notable names such as Joe Riggs, Josh Burkman, Marius Zaromskis and Forrest Petz on the regional scene. At just 23 years of age, Mein already has a wealth of experience under his belt and is certainly prepared for UFC-level competition.

The Canadian has earned victories in eight of his last nine bouts with the lone defeat coming to Tyron Woodley by way of a controversial split decision.

Miller (14-6, 1 NC) made a successful return to the Octagon last June when he defeated Ricardo Funch by submission at UFC on FX 4 for his first victory since December 2010. Miller had taken nearly one year away from the sport to tend to medical issues involving his son, but now appears to have moved past those issues and is prepared to fight on a regular basis.

After competing in his first 20 professional fights as a middleweight, Miller dropped down to 170-pounds for his bout against Funch and looked right at him at the weight class. The New Jersey native had lost five of seven at middleweight before the move and looks poised to make a run with his fresh start.

It is unknown at this time where Mein vs. Miller will air on the UFC 158 fight card, which is expected to be broadcast on pay-per-view (PPV), FX and Facebook.

UFC 158: "St-Pierre vs. Diaz" goes down March 16 from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. A welterweight championship grudge match between Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz serves as the main event while crucial 170-pound contests of Carlso Condit vs. Rory MacDonald and Johnny Hendricks vs. Jake Ellenberger fill the undercard.
