UFC on FOX 15 Lands Paige VanZant vs. Felice Herrig and Jim Miller vs. Paul Felder

UFC Fight Night Weigh-in

UFC on FOX 15 on Wednesday landed a couple more bouts, as women’s strawweights Paige VanZant and Felice Herrig will square off on the fight card, as will lightweights Jim Miller and Paul Felder.

The two new bouts were originally reported on UFC Tonight on FOX Sports 1. They join the already announced April 18 headliner pitting Lyoto Machida vs. Luke Rockhold.

Twenty-year-old VanZant (4-1) may not have been old enough to compete on The Ultimate Fighter, but she immediately became a fan favorite with her spirited TKO stoppage of Kailin Curran at UFC Fight Night 54 on Nov. 22 in Austin, Texas.

She’ll now face Herrig (10-5), who capped off her participation on The Ultimate Fighter with an armbar submission of Lisa Ellis on the show’s finale in December.

Miller (24-5, 1 NC) returns to the Octagon for the first time since last summer, when he lost the UFC Fight Night 45 main event to the red-hot Donald Cerrone in Atlantic City, N.J.

He faces no easy task trying to rebound from the loss when he faces Felder, who is undefeated in his ten professional bouts. Felder’s resume includes two UFC victories, over Jason Saggo and Danny Castillo. Miller will be his most experienced opponent to date.
