Fights on Tap is a weekly roundup of all the fights booked in the UFC, Bellator and other promotions.

International Fight Week is here! UFC 276 is days away, but before we get to that stacked pay-per-view event, let’s look at what we have ahead of us on the upcoming schedule.

The UFC either announced or finalized 15 fights this week, and a rematch between two legends has come together on days’ notice.

Jim Miller was scheduled to fight Bobby Green at UFC 276 on Saturday, but ‘King’ was forced to withdraw over undisclosed reasons. The UFC wasted no time finding a short-notice replacement for Miller, and he will now share the Octagon with a former opponent.

Enter Donald Cerrone.

Cerrone and Miller first met at UFC Fight Night 45, where ‘Cowboy’ finished ‘A-10’ with a head kick and punches in the second round. Cerrone defeated his next five opponents before being given a championship opportunity against then-champion Rafael Dos Anjos at UFC on FOX 17 nearly seven years ago. He suffered a first-round TKO loss to Dos Anjos. In recent years, Cerrone has struggled as he is winless in his past six appearances. Miller has looked good as of late, finishing Erick Gonzalez and Nikolas Motta at UFC Vegas 40 and UFC Vegas 48, respectively.
