There's an interesting lightweight match-up brewing for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) when the world's largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion returns to the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on Nov. 17, 2012.
UFC 154 will have Canadian grappler Mark Bocek matching jits and wits in front of his hometown fans opposite Brazilian submission wizard Rafael dos Anjos, and with both 155-pounders winning two straight, the outcome could leave one of these talents "in the mix."
Bocek (11-4) had a crack at UFC Lightweight Champion Ben Henderson back when the former World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) kingpin was just an aspiring contender. At the end of the third and final round, the "Smooth" one had captured the unanimous decision win.
Dos Anjos (17-6) airmailed George Sotiropoulos back to Australia with a thunderous knockout at UFC 132 just over a year ago. His momentum was slowed after a split decision loss to Gleison Tibau at UFC 139, but the Brazilian kept on truckin' with back-to-back wins over Kamal Shalorus (UFC on Fuel TV 3) and Anthony Njokuani (UFC on FUEL TV 4).
Who moves to the head of the class on fight night?
UFC 154 is poised to become one of the biggest fight cards of the year, as reighning Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre will return from the injured reserves to try and unify the 170-pound titles against Interim titleholder Carlos Condit.
