Jim Miller vs. Francisco Trinaldo is 13th addition to UFC Fight Night 119 in Brazil


After putting out a call for an opponent – at lightweight or welterweight – Jim Miller will remain at 155 pounds.

Miller (28-10 MMA, 17-9 UFC) is scheduled to fight fellow lightweight Francisco Trinaldo (21-5 MMA, 11-4 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 119. UFC officials recently added the bout to the fight card, which now boasts 13 matchups.

UFC Fight Night 119 takes place Oct. 28 at Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo. It airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass, though the bout order hasn’t been finalized.

During his nine years with the UFC, Miller has earned nine UFC fight-night bonuses, including six “Fight of the Night” bonus checks. However, he’s currently coming off a majority-decision loss to Dustin Poirier (in a “Fight of the Night”) and a unanimous-decision defeat to former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis.

He now takes on Trinaldo, who looks to bounce back after a lengthy winning streak was recently snapped. The 39-year-old Brazilian vet and former Jungle Fight champion, who debuted with the UFC in 2012, had won seven consecutive fights, which included knockout wins over Chad Laprise and Paul Felder. However, he suffered a recent submission defeat to contender Kevin Lee in March.

The latest UFC Fight Night 119 card now includes:

  • Lyoto Machida vs. Derek Brunson
  • Colby Covington vs. Demian Maia
  • Jarred Brooks vs. Deiveson Figueiredo
  • Augusto Mendes vs. Boston Salmon
  • Christian Colombo vs. TBA
  • Antonio Carlos Junior vs. Jack Marshman
  • Jack Hermansson vs. Thiago “Marreta” Santos
  • Rob Font vs. Pedro Munhoz
  • Hacran Dias vs. Jared Gordon
  • Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos vs. Max Griffin
  • Niko Price vs. Luan Chagas
  • Jim Miller vs. Francisco Trinaldo
  • John Lineker vs. Marlon Vera
