UFC 156: Jacob Volkmann vs. Bobby Green booked for Feb. 2 in Las Vegas

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

Another UFC vs. Strikeforce fight has been booked for an upcoming card, as Jacob Volkmann will take on Bobby Green at UFC 156: "Aldo vs. Edgar" on Sat., Feb. 2, 2013, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

More UFC vs. Strikeforce goodness? Yes, please.

The latest bout to feature members of each promotion pitted against each other has been added to the UFC 156: "Aldo vs. Edgar" event set for Sat., Feb. 2, 2013, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. It's a lightweight lowdown that will see Jacob Volkmann take on Bobby Green.

Volkmann himself announced the bout via Twitter:

"It's official. I'm fighting Bobby Green Feb 2nd on UFC 156. Vegas anyone?"

"Christmas" was last seen submitting Shane Roller via rear-naked choke in the first round of their battle back on Oct. 5 at UFC on FX 6: "Browne vs. Bigfoot." That gave him his sixth win in seven fights and represented a big rebound following his submission loss to Paul Sass.

Green comes over from Strikeforce riding a four-fight winning streak, with his last victory a unanimous decision win over Matt Ricehouse in August. Obviously, the 26-year-old "King" is looking to prove he's got what it takes to hang with the big boys.

Does he?

UFC 156 will feature a featherweight title fight as Jose Aldo puts his 145-pound strap on the line against lightweight import (and former champion) Frankie Edgar. In addition, Alistair Overeem returns to the Octagon to face fellow ex-Strikeforce heavyweight Antonio Silva.
