Jim Miller steps in for injured Gray Maynard against Joe Lauzon

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

Wednesday, Gray Maynard became the latest UFC fighter to drop out of an upcoming fight due to an injury.

But in this case, the UFC was quick to find a suitable replacement for his UFC 155 bout against Joe Lauzon, as Jim Miller will take Maynard's place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Dec. 29.

The UFC announced the moves on Wednesday.

The injury suffered by Maynard (11-1-1), who was looking for his second straight win after defeating Clay Guida in June, was undisclosed.

Lauzon (22-7), who holds the UFC record for post-fight bonuses with 11, has won three of his past four fights. His most recent bout, a submission win over Jamie Varner at UFC on FOX 4, is on the short list of this year's Fight of the Year candidates.

Miller (22-4), meanwhile, has a golden opportunity to rebound. The well-respected veteran from New Jersey has dropped two of his past three fights, most recently his submission loss to Nate Diaz at UFC on FOX 3 in May.
