UFC on FOX 8 adds Danny Castillo vs. Bobby Green to July 27 fight card in Seattle

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

Which one of these talented lightweight fighters will emerge as the next contender at 155 pounds?

Former World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) star vs. ex-Strikeforce prospect.

Team Alpha Male's Danny Castillo has been paired off against streaking lightweight Bobby Green in a bout that could propel one competitor into the "mix" at the upcoming UFC on FOX 8 fight card, scheduled for July 27, 2013 at the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington.

UFC officials announced the match-up earlier today.

Castillo (15-5) rebounded from a surprise knockout loss to Michael Johnson, which came in the second round of their UFC on FX 5 bout in Minnesota, by taking a unanimous decision win over Paul Sass at UFC on FUEL TV 7 in London, England, avoiding the dreaded "Sassangle" in the process.

"Last Call" is 5-2 since making his Octagon debut in early 2011.

Speaking of debuts, Green (20-5) made his with a bang, beating the brakes off veteran wrestler Jacob Volkmann. "Christmas" was canceled in the third round by way of rear naked choke, marking the fifth straight win for the Strikeforce import.

"King" has 16 finishes in 20 wins.

UFC on FOX 8 will also feature a compelling 170-pound match-up pitting Rory MacDonald vs. Jake Ellenberger, while Melvin Guillard tries to stay alive in the lightweight division at the expense of Mac Danzig.
