UFC 84: Mac Danzig vs. Mark Bocek

UFC 84 mac danzig vs mark bocek
Mac Danzig (17-4-1) -- the welterweight winner of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 6 -- will make his lightweight debut inside the Octagon against Mark Bocek (5-1) at UFC 84 on April 19 in Montreal, Canada, according to

Danzig snapped a two-fight losing streak when he made his Octagon debut, defeating Tommy Speer at the TUF 6 Finale on December 8, 2007, to capture the TUF 6 welterweight crown. The PETA poster boy announced during his post-fight interview that he intended to compete at lightweight (155 pounds) going forward.

That decision pits him against Bocek -- a Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist from Canada with two UFC fights already under his belt. He has one win (unanimous decision) over Doug Evans at UFC 79: "Nemesis" and one loss (technical knockout) to Frank Edgar at UFC 73: "Stacked."

Not surprisingly Bocek is another Canadian who adds more Canadian flavor to the Canadian card. To check out the most recent UFC 84 fight card click here.
