A switch has been made for the upcoming UFC 134 card in Brazil as submission specialist Rousimar Palhares is now scheduled to meet Dan Miller in a middleweight bout.

Originally, Palhares had been expected to meet fellow Brazilian Alexandre ‘Cacareco’ Ferreira, but it appears a change has been made with about 6 weeks to go until fight time.

The bout was announced by UFC officials on Wednesday.

Dan Miller (13-5) gets back in action for the first time since losing a decision to Nate Marquardt at UFC 128.

A member of the AMA Fight Club team, Miller and his brother Jim have been known to be the go to fighters for UFC matchmaker Joe Silva to call on when somebody needs to step in for a fight, and once again they pull through.

Prior to the loss to Marquardt, Miller had won his last two bouts in a row and is 5-4 overall during his career with the UFC.

The bout between Palhares and Miller is expected to be on the undercard for the show taking place in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
