If the bulk of tonight's (Sat., April 27, 2013) UFC 159: "Jones vs. Sonnen" main card on pay-per-view (PPV) at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, is built on bouts featuring two fighters who hyped their respective showdowns with a considerable amount of trash talk, the opener is quite the opposite.
Indeed, the soft spoken Jim Miller will welcome Pat Healy back to the Octagon.
Miller recently 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 late last year in Las Vegas.
Will he make "Bam Bam" his Pebbles?
Healy tied a ribbon around his Strikeforce career by turning away the previously unbeaten Kurt Holobaugh at the "Marquardt vs. Saffeidine" event back in March in Oklahoma. The WEC veteran has more than half his wins coming by way of submission.
Who wants it more in "The Garden State?"
