Bobby Green vs. Jim Miller booked for UFC 172 on April 26 in Baltimore

Joshua Lindsey-USA TODAY Sports

"King" looks to conquer a new kingdom when he invades "Charm City" later this year.

Strikeforce import Bobby Green will look to take one step closer to the lightweight title when he battles former top contender Jim Miller at the UFC 172 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place on April 26, 2014 inside Maryland's Baltimore Arena.

UFC announced the booking on Friday night.

King (22-5) has won seven fights in a row, including a split-decision victory over the venerable Pat Healy at the UFC on FOX 9 event last December. Prior to that, "King" polished off Jacob Volkmann at UFC 156 and James Krause at "Fight for the Troops 3."

It only gets harder from here.

Miller (23-4) has long been considered one of the toughest outs in the entire 155-pound division. After his UFC 159 loss to "Bam Bam" was overturned to a "no contest," the scrappy Spartan submitted Fabricio Camoes in the first round of their UFC 168 affair.

Should be a good one.

UFC 172 will feature the return of 205-pound champion Jon Jones, as he attempts to defend his light heavyweight strap against Glover Teixeira. Elsewhere on the card, Anthony Johnson will emerge from the regional circuit to scrap with Phil Davis, while Luke Rockhold tries to make it two in a row opposite Tim Boetsch.
