UFC 83: Cain Velasquez vs. Brad Morris

cain velasquez
UFC heavyweight newcomers, Cain Velasquez (2-0) and Brad Morris (10-2), will hook 'em up at UFC 83: "Serra vs. St. Pierre 2" at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, on April 19, according to UFC.com.

Velasquez is a former All American wrestler from Arizona State University who now trains at American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) in San Jose, Calif. He has been described by his training partners such as Jon Fitch and Josh Koscheck as a talented prospect who will open some eyes when he enters the Octagon.

He has jumped right in the fire with his two professional bouts for well-known promotions such as Bodog Fight and Strikeforce. Both of those contests ended via technical knockout.

Morris is a native of Australia who has been competing in mixed martial arts for more than five years. He has a nice mix of submissions and (technical) knockouts to his credit, making this a dangerous fight for Velasquez.

Kristof Midoux was the last person to challenge Morris under the Bodog Fight banner, and he didn't make it past round two. Morris will look to extend his win streak to four when he takes on Velasquez.

UFC 83 features the main event between UFC Welterweight Champion, Matt Serra, and interim UFC Welterweight Champion, Georges St. Pierre.
