Dan Miller will get the chance to fight near home when he fights at UFC on FX 4 in Atlantic City, and he’ll have a new weight class as well.

The long time middleweight has decided to move down to the welterweight division. He will make his debut at 170 pounds on June 22 when he faces Ricardo Funch.

UFC officials announced the bout on Wednesday.

After 10 fights in the UFC and a record of 5-5 overall, New Jersey’s own Dan Miller will try his hand at a lower weight class. Miller has dropped his last two in a row to Nate Marquardt and Rousimar Palhares, but will now try to revitalize his career at the lower weight.

Still searching for his first win in the UFC will be Miller’s opponent in New Jersey, Ricardo Funch.

The Team Link fighter, who trains alongside UFC heavyweight Gabriel Gonzaga, has gone 0-3 thus far in UFC fights, but hopes to change that trend when he fights in June against Miller in his welterweight debut.

While no formal announcements have been made regarding the placement of the fight on the UFC on FX 4 card, it’s like Miller vs. Funch will be a preliminary bout on the show.
