A welterweight match-up between Yoshiyuki "Zenko" Yoshida (11-4) and Mike "Joker" Guymon (11-3-1) is being finalized for the preliminary card for UFC 113 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Both fighters have consented to the fight, and the official bout agreement is expected to follow shortly.

Heading into the bout, Yoshida, a decorated judoka-turned-mixed-martial-artist, finds himself in a "do-or-die" situation with a 2-2 record in UFC.

In his most recent fight, he suffered a KO loss to the hulking welterweight, Anthony "Rumble" Johnson at UFC 104. He also fell victim to a highlight-reel knockout by Josh Koscheck at "UFC - Fight for the Troops" in December, 2008. Meanwhile, he holds victories over War Machine and Brandon Wolff during his UFC tenure.

Prior to signing with UFC, Yoshida became the welterweight champion in the Japanese-based Cage Force. There, he defeated Akira Kikuchi and current UFC welterweight title contender, Dan Hardy (via DQ).

Former King of the Cage welterweight champion, Mike "Joker" Guymon, stumbled in his UFC debut in January when he succumbed to the Canadian young gun, Rory MacDonald. A veteran fighter who made his MMA debut in 1999, Guymon seeks to solidify his footing in UFC with a win over Yoshida.
