The changes for the UFC Fight Night 19 card in Oklahoma City continue to roll in as MMAWeekly.com has confirmed with sources close to the fight that Dan Miller is now set to square off against C.B. Dollaway in a middleweight match-up.
Originally, Dan Miller was stepping in as a replacement for Ed Herman to face Arizona Combat Sports fighter Aaron Simpson. Herman had been tabbed to face Wilson Gouveia at UFC 102 in Portland.
It appears Simpson has been pulled from the fight with Miller to return to the match-up with Herman, due to Gouveia now dropping out.
Simpson on Monday confirmed to MMAMadness.com that he signed a contract to return to the Herman fight. His teammate, C.B. Dollaway will occupy the spot against Miller.
Dollaway last appeared at UFC 100 where he lost by guillotine choke early in the first round to fellow "Ultimate Fighter" alum Tom Lawlor.
Up to that fight, Dollaway had won in his last two bouts in the UFC with victories over Jesse Taylor and Mike Massenzio.
Miller returns to action in September following a loss to Chael Sonnen, which marks his UFC career record at 3-1.

I hope Dan pounds the ever loving snot outta C.B., he's such a cocky arse. I'd love to see him have a losing record in the UFC (2-3 if all goes well) & get dropped!
