Jim Miller and Joe Lauzon are poised to fight at UFC on FOX 21 in a rematch of their epic battle that dates back to UFC 155, which closed out the year for the UFC in 2012.
UFC officials announced on Monday that Miller vs. Lauzon 2 would take place on Aug. 27, when the promotion returns to Rogers Arena in Vancouver.

In their first battle, Miller and Lauzon fought a bloody, three-round bout that ended with a unanimous decision in favor of Miller. They were awarded the Fight of the Night from the UFC.
Miller (26-8, 1 NC) and Lauzon (26-11) have struggled to gain momentum in the years since, but neither has lost his ability to excite fans. Each has won several post-fight performance bonuses.
With Miller coming off of a first-round finish of Takanori Gomi, and Lauzon making quick work of Diego Sanchez, both fights at UFC 200, officials are hoping that they still have the chemistry to rekindle their show-stopping throwdown from 2012.
UFC on FOX 21 does not yet have a named headliner, but will also feature featherweights Anthony Pettis and Charles Oliveira, as well as a strawweight bout between Paige VanZant and Bec Rawlings.
