IFL’s Mark and Jim Miller Sign With The UFC

UFC middleweight prospect Mark Miller

According to MMAJunkie, two of Mixed Martial Arts top prospects, brothers Jim and Mark Miller, have abandon ship with the IFL to climb aboard with the UFC.

The brothers made their mark quickly in the IFL, Dan Miller (8-1) captured the IFL middleweight belt by submitting Ryan McGivern with a sick kneebar in May (picture above).

Jim Miller (11-1) is considered one of the top lightweight prospects in MMA today. He defeated IFL top contender Bart Palaszewski in his debut fight with the IFL. His only loss came by way of UFC lightweight contender Frankie Edgar at Reality Fighting 14 back in 2006.

The Miller brothers will be a great addition the current UFC talent pool.
