By FCF Staff
A trio of bouts matching Americans versus Canadians has been added to the March 16th, UFC 158 line-up, which will be hosted by Montreal’s Bell Centre.
At welterweight, Dan Miller will take on Strikeforce vet Jordan Mein. Miller (14-6) hasn’t fought since June when he submitted Ricardo Funch, while Mein is coming off an impressive, first round stoppage of Forrest Petz at a Score Fighting Series card in November.
In the lightweight division, John Makdessi will battle Daron Cruickshank. Makdessi (10-2) worked his way to a unanimous decision win over Sam Stout in his last outing at UFC 154, and Cruickshank (12-2) KO’d Henry Martinez in his last bout at UFC on FOX 5.
Then at middlewieght, Nick Ring (13-1) will face Chris Camozzi (18-5). Ring’s last fight took place in July when he scored a unanimous decision win over Court McGee, while Camozzi earned a UD victory over Luiz Cane in October.
UFC 158 will be headlined by a welterweight title fight between champion Georges St. Pierre and former Strikeforce champ Nick Diaz.
