A bantamweight brawl between "Kid" Yamamoto and Damacio Page is booked to take place at UFC 135 from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colo., on Sept. 24, 2011.

The promotion announced today that the 135-pound "aggressive sluggers" have "verbally agreed" to battle in the "Mile High City."

Yamamoto made his long-awaited Octagon debut at UFC 126 earlier this year, losing a frustrating unanimous decision to Demetrious Johnson. "Mighty Mouse" leveraged his strong wrestling skills to keep the dangerous Japanese striker on his back for most of the 15-minute fight.

He was expected to return to action against Chris Cariaso at UFC 130 on Memorial Day weekend; however, an injury sustained during training forced Yamamoto off the card. He's now apparently healthy and ready to take on the "Angel of Death" in a much better match up for his style.

Or so it seems, anyway.

Page also dropped his Octagon debut, succumbing to a Brian Bowles guillotine choke at UFC on Versus 3 back in March 2011. In the fight prior, he also lost to the aforementioned Johnson via the aforementioned guillotine choke.

He likely won't have to worry too much about submissions with Yamamoto, but rather his speed, power and ground and pound prowess.

UFC 135 is expected to feature a main event between light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, defending his 205-pound world title against Quinton Jackson. Former welterweight champion Matt Hughes is also penciled in to return to the Octagon to face the original "Ultimate Fighter," Diego Sanchez.
