Sean Sherk Off of UFC 108; Bang Ludwig In
In less than a week, Jim Miller has been training for three different opponents for his UFC 108 bout. Originally, Miller was to fight Tyson Griffin but he pulled out of the fight with an injury. Sean Sherk stepped up from the UFC 108 undercard and took the main card fight with Miller. However, Sean Sherk was just cut in training and he required stitches for the inch-long cut.
With Sherk having to pull out, Joe Silva has signed former UFC fighter Duane “Bang” Ludwig to fight Jim Miller. UFC fans may remember Ludwig’s quick knockout of Jonathan Goulet back in 2006. Ludwig, who is 2-0 in the UFC, also beat Genki Sudo at UFC 42. Since his fight with Goulet, Ludwig has fought predominantly in the Strikeforce organization where he has recorded two wins and four losses.
