UFC Fight Night 24: Jon Madsen vs Mike Russow booked for Seattle on March 26


Two streaking heavyweights have been booked to throw leather, as Jon Madsen is reportedly set to take on Mike Russow at UFC Fight Night 24, which is rumored to be taking place at the Key Arena in Seattle on March 26. brought word of the pending match-up last night.

Madsen was a member of the seemingly talent-lacking season 10 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF). However the Team Deathcluctch member has gone 4-0 in his budding UFC career and is currently 7-0 overall.

Coming off a destruction of Gilbert Yvel, can the South Dakota native continue his ascension up the 265-pound ladder?

If you don't remember Mike Russow, which is possible due to how long he's been on the shelf with injuries, here is a quick refresher. In May of last year (2010) the heavyweight hype train consisted solely of a one Todd Duffee.

That is, until he ran into the right hand of Russow.

It was an impressive victory, considering he was getting his ass handed to him for three rounds and broke his forearm at some point in the fight.

The win earned him a "Knockout of the Night" bonus and officially put him on the map. Can he repeat that performance against Madsen?

UFC Fight Night 24 is currently scheduled for Seattle, Washington and will feature Tito Ortiz vs Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in the main event of the evening.

Other bouts in the works include, Dan Hardy vs Anthony Johnson and Amir Sadollah vs Duane Ludwig.

Stay tuned to for more on this still-developing fight card.
