Mike Ricci and Colin Fletcher Agree to UFC 158 Bout
By FCF Staff
It appears as though another Montreal fighter will compete in front of his hometown fans at the upcoming UFC 158 event, as the UFC has announced that the city’s Mike Ricci and fellow TUF vet Colin Fletcher have agreed to fight on the March 16th card.
Ricci (7-3) is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Colton Smith at the TUF 16 Finale in December, after working his way through the competition as a welterweight. The 26 year-old fighter will return to the lightweight division to face Fletcher, where the Tristar fighter was competing before making the show.
Fletcher (8-2), on the other hand, is coming off a UD loss to Norman Parke in the recent finale of the TUF “Smashes” competition. The 30 year-old, British fighter had won four straight official bouts prior to the fight.
UFC 158 will be hosted by Montreal’s Bell Center, and will feature Ricci’s teammate, welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, taking on Nick Diaz in the main event.
