The UFC Fight Night Manila lineup continues to grow, as promotion officials recently announced a pair of new contests for the Oct. 15 event.
Cole Miller will face Mizuto Hirota at featherweight, while See Hee Ham will meet Danielle Taylor at strawweight. UFC Fight Night 97 takes place at Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines, and is headlined by a 145-pound duel pitting Ricardo Lamas against B.J. Penn. The card will air on UFC Fight Pass.
A 19-time Octagon veteran, Miller last appeared at UFC 199, where he dropped a unanimous verdict to Alex Caceres. Hirota, meanwhile, is looking for his first UFC win after losing his first two outings and battling to a split draw against Teruto Ishihara in his last bout on Sept. 26.
Ham has suffered defeat in two of her three promotional appearances, including a three-round decision loss to Bec Rawlings at UFC Fight Night “Hunt vs. Mir” this past March. Taylor made her Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night “Rodriguez vs. Caceres,” falling to Maryna Moroz via split decision.
