Dan Miller in for Akiyama

Up-to-the-minute news on the UFC 128 fight card - UFC 128: Shogun vs. Jones takes place Saturday, March 19th at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.


Updated March 12: UFC President Dana White announced today another change to next weekend's main card. “Yoshihiro Akiyama will not be able to participate at UFC 128 due to the tragedy in Japan," said White.

"New Jersey native Dan Miller proves once again that he will fight anyone, anywhere, any time by agreeing to step up from the prelims to face Nate Marquardt," added White. "Marquardt has long been a top ten ranked middleweight and Miller jumped at the opportunity to face him.”

Dan Miller's brother Jim is also on the card in their home state, fighting Kamal Shalorus. The two previously fought on the same night at UFC 124; this is the first time two siblings will both appear on the main card.

Miller's original opponent - Nick Catone, will now face off against Serra-Longo standout and former Ultimate Fighter 11 competitor Costantinos Philippou on March 19 in Newark, New Jersey. Philippou is currently riding an eight fight unbeaten streak.

“7-1 New Yorker Costantinos Philippou has verbally agreed to step in and fight New Jersey’s Nick Catone in a 195 catchweight fight," said UFC president Dana White.

The main event of UFC 128 changed last month when Jon Jones stepped in for injured teammate Rashad Evans to fight Shogun Rua for the light heavyweight belt.
