After being sidelined for nearly a year due to a blown-out knee, the King of Dublin is back in the game. UFC officials announced yesterday that Irish featherweight contender Conor McGregor will take on American 145′er Cole Miller in the main event of UFC Fight Night 46, July 19th at The O2 in Dublin, Ireland.

Miller has been angling for a fight against McGregor for months, trash-talking “McGruber” at almost every public opportunity and calling him a “show pony” who doesn’t deserve the hype. But of course, everybody wants it until they get it. McGregor responded to Miller’s criticism on yesterday’s installment of UFC Tonight:

[Miller] opened his mouth, he was under the influence of post-fight adrenaline. It has the same effect as alcohol. It makes you brave. He spoke with bravery, but guess what happened? It wore off. Now he’s faced with the reality that he’s going to face me July 19th. Me coming back from this injury is a man possessed. I’m going go in there and I’m going to break him in the very first exchange.

“…He does not have a reach advantage. He’s slow, he’s scared, I’m fast, I’m fearless. It’s no contest. The first exchange I’m going to break him. I see it in his voice. I see it in his body language. He’s petrified. I’m coming to get him. Not just him. Forget him. I’ve been listening to everyone calling me out and saying this and that while I’m forced to sit on the sideline. Now I’m back.

“I’m going to stop Cole. Whoever’s next. Cub [Swanson], I’ll break Cub. I’ll embarrass Chad [Mendes]. I’ll annihilate Jose [Aldo]. I’m coming to takeover the division. It’s my division.”

The “McGregor vs. Miller” supporting card is filling up rapidly, and is looking pretty damn solid for an international Fight Night event. Also on the lineup…

Gunnar Nelson vs. Ryan LaFlare
Brad Pickett vs. Ian McCall
Tom Lawlor vs. Ilir Latifi
Cody Donovan vs. Nikita Krylov
Neil Seery vs. Phil Harris
