UFC 165: Mark Bocek vs. Michel Prazeres, Stephen Thompson vs. Chris Clements Added
By FCF Staff
The upcoming UFC 165 card in Toronto, Ontario has two more bouts booked, as lightweight Mark Bocek will take on Michel Prazeres, and welterweight Chris Clements will fight Stephen Thompson.
The match-ups were reported first by Sportsnet’s Joe Ferraro and the UFC proceeded to confirm the fights Wednesday.
Bocek (11-5) is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Rafael dos Anjos, while Prazeres (16-1) suffered a UD defeat versus welterweight Paulo Thiago in May.
Clements (11-4) will be competing for the first time since last July, when he lost by submission to Matt Riddle. The latter tested positive for marijuana following UFC 149, however, and the bout was declared a no contest.
Since the fight, Clements has been recovering from surgery he had done to repair damage to his shoulder and arm.
Thompson (7-1), meanwhile, handed Nah-Shon Burrell a UD defeat in his last outing, which took place in May.
UFC 165 will be hosted by Toronto’s Air Canada Centre and will feature light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones taking on Alexander Gustafsson.
