Promotion officials announced the pairing on Wednesday. UFC on Fox
31 takes place at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee on Dec. 15 and is
headlined by lightweight clash pitting Al Iaquinta
against Kevin Lee. The
main card airs on the Fox Network following prelims on Fox Sports 1
and UFC Fight Pass.
Miller defeated Oliveira via first-round submission in their
initial meeting at UFC 124 on Dec. 11, 2010. The New Jersey native
has a promotion-record 30 Octagon appearances to his credit. Miller
recently halted a four-bout skid by tapping out Alex White in
the opening stanza at UFC 228.
Oliveira, meanwhile, surpassed Royce Gracie
for most submission finishes in promotion history by tapping
Giagos via rear-naked choke at UFC Fight Night 137. “Do Bronx”
has been victorious in three of his last four UFC outings.
