Jim Miller vs Donald Cerrone official for UFC Fight Night 45 on July 16 in Atlantic City

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

Both Khabib Nurmagomedov and Michael Johnson were in the running for a "Cowboy" clash ... so perhaps they can fight each other, instead?

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight Donald Cerrone recently said he "had a fight," while UFC confirmed it was trying to make sure it was against Jim Miller. Two days later and the promotion has signatures, which means this one is bagged and tagged.

Where and when?

The five-round main event of UFC Fight Night 45, which is scheduled to take place inside Revel Resort & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on July 16, 2014. As per most "Fight Night" events, select prelim bouts will stream online via Fight Pass network, while the remainder of the card will be televised on FOX Sports 1.

UFC announced the pairing earlier today, joining the previously-announced fight featuring Aljamain Sterling and Hugo Viana.

The bout marks a quick turnaround for both fighters, who combined, share 15 post-fight bonuses, including three "Fight of the Night" awards. Cerrone (23-6) disposed of Edson Barboza at the UFC on FOX 11 event last month in Orlando, dropping the Brazilian with a stiff jab before choking him out.

Miller (24-4, 1 NC) competed just a few days later and had similar results, strangling Yancy Medeiros on the UFC 172 main card in Baltimore (replay here). Both fighters sport a string of three consecutive wins and will undoubtedly put on a show when the promotion heads back to "The Garden State" this summer.
