Dan Miller Not Injured, Out Of Bout With Sean Pierson Due To 'Good News'

via cdn3.sbnation.com

Dan Miller will not be competing against Sean Pierson at UFC 152, but there's a very good reason for that. It had been reported that he was injured and forced to withdraw from the bout, but Mike Constantino of AMA Fight Club (Miller's camp) spoke to Bloody Elbow and confirmed that the reason for his removal from the bout was for something completely different - some good news regarding his ailing son, Danny Jr.

"Danny jr. is scheduled for his kidney transplant, finally approved. Mid September," Constantino revealed in a text.

As reported previously on BE, Miller's young son has been dealing with a rare kidney disorder that required a transplant. They created the Daniel James Miller Foundation in order to raise money to pay for the transplant, and the MMA community stepped up to help out. The transplant will now go down next month, which is excellent news and obviously a legitimate reason for Miller to postpone the bout.
