Jim Miller vs. Beneil Dariush booked for UFC on FOX 15 with Paul Felder hurt

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has made a late change to its upcoming UFC on FOX 15 mixed martial arts (MMA) fight card, which takes place inside the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on Sat., April 18, 2015.

That's because "Irish Dragon," Paul Felder, has been injured and forced to withdraw.

Stepping in for him on short notice is the red-hot Beneil Dariush (10-1), winner of three straight with two submissions. He'll face local hero Jim Miller (24-5, 1 NC), who is coming off a dreadful performance against Donald Cerrone, but still considered to be one of the toughest outs at 155 pounds.

Pretty good fight, as far as late replacements go.

UFC on FOX 15 will be headlined by a spectacular main event pitting former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida against ex-Strikeforce 185-pound kingpin Luke Rockhold. Elsewhere on the card, Yoel Romero gets busy opposite Ronaldo Souza.
