UFC Fight Night 45 held in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Wednesday July 16th at the Revel Casino—possibly the last UFC event to be held at that venue. The card features a main event between two top-10 lightweights: #6 Donald Cerrone (30-6, 1 NC) vs. #7 Jim Miller (24-4, 1 NC).
Both fighters are jockeying for a spot among the title contenders in the division. Cerrone takes part in his 3rd fight of the calender year, and is on a 3-fight win streak. While Miller is technically unbeaten in his last 4.
The co-main event also features a pair of exciting lightweights: Edson Barboza (13-2) and (14-5), whom both ironically suffered losses to Donald Cerrone in their last fight and are looking to bounce back.
The full results of the 11-fights on UFC Fight Night 45 will be updated as they happen.
