A welterweight match up between Ricky "Horror" Story and Nick Osipczak has been added to the UFC 112 card set to take place on April 10 from Abu Dhabi, the home of Zuffa's newest business partners, according to FiveOuncesofPain.com.
Story (9-3) has looked impressive of late. After dropping his UFC debut to John Hathaway at UFC 99, "Horror" has put together back-to-back wins. After submitting Brian Foster at UFC 103, Story had arguably the best performance of his young career outworking Jesse Lennox at UFC Fight Night 20 to earn a unanimous decision.
Nick Osipczak, though he holds an unblemished record of 5-0, is largely inexperienced. Most fans will remember the brit from his stint on The Ultimate Fighter: United States vs United Kingdom. Osipczak made it to the show's semi-finals where he lost DaMarques Johnson.
In his two official fights under the UFC banner, Osipczak submitted fellow reality show competitor Frank Lester at The Ultimate Finale 9, and pulled an upset when he finished Matt Riddle in the third round of their contest at UFC 105.
UFC 112 was made official for April 10 from Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi by the Zuffa brass last week. The show may just prove to be their best of the year. As it is currently constructed, the card will feature a three-headed monster of main events.
Former champ Matt Hughes will welcome Renzo Gracie to the Octagon, BJ Penn will try to defend his lightweight belt yet again, this time against Frankie Edgar, and Anderson Silva will finally put his title on the line for the first time in almost exactly one year when he takes on the rejuvenated Vitor Belfort.
