Before Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heads to Ireland on Fight Pass, it's making a quick pit stop in "The Garden State" to give local hero, Jim Miller, a chance to get himself back into the title hunt with a big win over "Cowboy" Cerrone during a special midweek mash-up on FOX Sports 1.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is canceling your Wednesday night plans in favor of its UFC Fight Night 45 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on July 16, 2014, headlined by a lightweight bangfest pitting 155-pound "Cowboy" Donald Cerrone against hometown hotshot Jim Miller, airing on FOX Sports 1 with "Prelims" bouts streaming live on the promotion's new "Fight Pass" digital network.

The bout marks a quick turnaround for both fighters, who combined, share 15 post-fight bonuses, including three "Fight of the Night" awards. Cerrone (23-6) disposed of Edson Barboza at the UFC on FOX 11 event last April in Orlando, dropping the Brazilian with a stiff jab before choking him out.

Miller (24-4, 1 NC) competed just a few days later and had similar results, strangling Yancy Medeiros on the UFC 172 main card in Baltimore. Both fighters sport a string of three consecutive wins and will undoubtedly put on a show when the promotion heads back to "Dirty Jersey" this summer.
