A few weeks ago, UFC 152 looked to be pretty weak, but it has now become solid all-around, with interesting prelims and a good main card. Today, as reported by MMA Junkie, UFC officials announced yet another fight, likely set to make an appearance on the prelims as welterweights Dan Miller and Sean Pierson square off at the event.

Dan Miller is a gritty and tough fighter, with a game that revolves mostly around his jiu jitsu. His last fight, a submission win in the third round over Ricardo Funch, was his welterweight debut, after a long run at middleweight. In his time at that weight, he had fought such notable fighters as Nate Marquardt, Chael Sonnen, Rousimar Palhares, Michael Bisping, and Demian Maia. Though he didn't beat these big names, he never put on a bad fight, and would fight to the bitter end to see if he could find himself a win. He has nine submission victories, and it is likely that we see him try to impose his will on Sean Pierson.

Pierson is a fighter based out of Canada, bearing a career record of 12-6. Of his 12 wins, only 2 have come by way of decision, both of which were in the UFC. He was welcomed to the UFC by Matt Riddle, who he beat by unanimous decision. He was then immediately thrown into much tougher fights, dropping two straight to Jake Ellenberger and Dong Hyun Kim respectively. In his last bout, he won a decision over Jake Hecht at UFC on FX 3. He will be looking for 2 in a row with a win over Dan Miller.

UFC 152 takes place on September 22nd at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is set to be headlined by a fight between Joseph Benavidez and Demetrius Johnson for the vacant flyweight title.
