The UFC announced earlier this week that they will be bringing UFC on FOX 11 to Orlando, Florida. With American Top Team and the Blackzilians camps only hours away, expect a lot of Florida based fighters to be on the card. One man who wants in is American Top Team product, Jorge Masvidal. Masvidal took to Twitter yesterday to call out fellow UFC Lightweight, Jim Miller, to battle at UFC on FOX 11.

Masvidal is not very active on Twitter, so if he is calling someone out, the UFC should be listening. Masvidal is 25-8 and 2-1 in the UFC thus far. In his last bout he fell short in a decision to Rustam Khabilov.
As for Jim Miller, he has yet to respond to Masvidal’s tweet. Miller is fresh off his submission victory over Fabricio Camoes at UFC 168. That fight was his first time back in the Octagon after an eight month layoff.
This fight would certainly be an intriguing matchup and clash of styles. Miller is a fantastic submission grappler and wrestler while Masvidal is a savvy striker and brawler. Both men put on exciting fights and could certainly open up the FOX main card, or headline the prelims.
