UFC 79: Mark Bocek vs. Doug Evans

Canadian Brazilian jiu-jitsu phenom Mark Bocek (4-1) will return to action inside the Octagon against Doug Evans (5-1) at UFC 79: "Nemesis" on December 29, according to MMAWeekly.com.

Both lightweights are looking to bounce back from the first losses in their careers the last time out.

Frank Edgar stopped Bocek via technical knockout with just five seconds remaining in round one at UFC 73: "Stacked" back in July. Evans, on the other hand, opened a few eyes with an impressive performance -- albeit in a technical knockout loss -- to Roger Huerta at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 5 Finale in June.

The 155-pound clash will most likely be featured on the undercard of the New Year's Eve weekend pay-per-view (PPV) event from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Serra is booked to defend his title for the first time against former 170-pound champion, Matt Hughes, in the main event of the evening.

In addition, former MMA champions Chuck Liddell and Wanderlei Silva will co-headline the show when the two finally meet in a light heavyweight megabout that has been years in the making.
