Andy Ogle will face Cole Miller in a featherweight clash at the UFC event in Manchester in October.
Team Kaobon’s Andy ‘Little Axe’ Ogle will return to the cage in October, when he takes on ATT’s Cole Miller at UFC Fight Night 30.
The featherweight clash has just been confirmed by UFC UK, set to take place in Manchester, UK.
Ogle (9-2) was forced to withdraw from his previously scheduled bout against Conor McGregor in August, but his turnaround has been a relatively quick one. He got his biggest career victory to date in February when he defeated Josh Grispi via decision in London, and he’ll be hoping to use that momentum to continue climbing the ladder.
Ogle garnered many fans when he featured on The Ultimate Fighter, and he was given a shot in the UFC by Dana White following his performances at 155lbs. His official Octagon debut was a close decision loss to Hamid ‘Akira’ Corassani.
Ogle’s opponent, Cole Miller (19-8), is much more experienced, and has been around the UFC since his own stint on TUF 5 in 2007. Originally campaigning at lightweight, he dropped to 145lbs last year, but hasn’t had his best run of form there.
With fourteen UFC bouts, posting an 8-6 record, Miller has fought some of the best in the world, but with three losses in his last four it seems like victory is essential. He has wins over the likes of Ross Pearson, Bart Palaszewski and Jorge Gurgel.
Both will see winning as a necessity, but for very different reasons. It’s an intriguing matchup, and it should catch the eye of the UK fans heading to the Phones4U Arena.
The event will be headlined by a middleweight clash between Michael Bisping and Mark Munoz.

Evangelista ‘Cyborg’ Santos will not be able to fight against Paul Daley and a replacement is being sought.
Author: Jay Furness
The highly anticipated welterweight clash between Paul “Semtex” Daley and Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos will no longer go ahead on the July 30th Strikeforce card, with the Brazilian being forced to withdraw due to a shoulder injury.
Although the possibility that the bout may be scratched came to light late last night via MMAPrime.tv from a source in the Santos camp, YourMMA.tv were able to confirm with Daley’s people this morning that it was indeed official. Strikeforce are said to be looking for a replacement for Daley with five weeks until fight time.
The striker vs. striker battle of “Cyborg” and “Semtex” was hot on the lips of many MMA fans, with neither man known for taking a backwards step and both having a string of stoppage wins on their resume due to the concussive power in their hands and feet.
Although Daley lost his last bout in an entertaining one-round affair with Nick Diaz for the Strikeforce title, he had just one defeat in his last nine prior to that – that loss coming via decision to Josh Koscheck. Seven of those wins came via strikes, so it’s easy to see why people still want to see the Daley name on the bill as you’re almost guaranteed that someone is going to hit the canvas.
Up-and-coming wrestler Tyron Woodley is being name-checked by fans as the replacement they’d like to see, but with the relatively short notice it’s unclear as of yet who will step in to take on the challenge. Woodley’s unblemished 8-0 record — with six wins under the Strikeforce banner — means that he is in a prime spot should he want the opportunity.

The UFC’s return to London on March 8th will feature top Swede Alexander Gustafsson in a title elimination bout.
Author: Jay Furness
Dana White made a key announcement for the UFC’s next scheduled card in London at the UFC Fight Night 30 post-fight press conference, revealing that the main event looks set to be Alexander Gustafsson vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, ‘Little Nog’.
Gustafsson, who was at the press conference, spoke very highly of his opponent, stating it was a very tough test for him on March 8th, 2013.
He comes in off a very close decision loss to Jon Jones for the UFC light-heavyweight title in a bout that made him an instant star. Prior to that, Gustafsson had a six-fight win streak in the UFC, including victories over Mauricio Rua and Thiago Silva.
Nogueira hasn’t fought since February, but he defeated Rashad Evans back then, and toppled Tito Ortiz in his fight prior to that. Although not as active as the young Swede, he is considered a legend in the sport.
Dana White also confirmed that victory would put Alex as the number-one contender, stating there would definitely be a rematch if both he and Jones won their next bouts.
With the UFC’s European Fight Night tour, many thought Alex would feature in Sweden, but Garry Cook stated that there is plenty of talent to stack a card there, and him not featuring in Malmo wouldn’t be an issue.
As it stands, UK UFC fans get a potentially great five-rounder to possibly determine a title-contender at 205lbs.
It was take place at Wembley Arena.
