A lightweight fight has been agreed to between Gray Maynard and Jim Miller at UFC 96.  The report comes from thegarv.com, but several other venues have confirmed the fight with Miller’s camp.

The fight is a solid add and a solid fight between two of the best lightweights.  Both guys are fighters that some think are serious contenders.  Miller comes by way of the IFL and is already 2-0 in the UFC.  He came in on short notice and destroyed Matt Wiman.  He will need a good performance and time to prepare for Gray Maynard.  The winner would have to be near the top of the division.  Maynard has done great in the UFC since his stint on TUF 5.  He has key wins over Frank Edgar and Rich Clementi.  A very exciting bout on what looks to be an amazing card which will also feature Chuck Liddell, Brandon Vera, and Keith Jardine as well as a great heavyweight match between Shane Carwin and Gabriel Gonzaga.
