It will be the battle of The Ultimate Fighter winners at UFC 145. On Thursday evening, lightweight Mac Danzig (Season Six) announced on his Twitter account that he’ll battle Efrain Escudero (Season Eight) on March 24th in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Danzig has alternated between wins and losses over his last five fights. The veteran was last seen dropping a unanimous decision to Matt Wiman this past October at “UFC on Versus 6.”
Escudero (Pictured) posted a disappointing decision loss to Jacob Volkmann last Friday at UFC 141. It was his first contest inside the Octagon since being fired in October 2010.
Although a venue has not been announced for UFC 145, the trusty rumor mill claims the Bell Centre in Montreal is the front-runner to serve as host.
Here is the card’s current roster:
Mac Danzig vs. Efrain Escudero
Matt Wiman vs. Mark Bocek
Mark Hominick vs. Eddie Yagin
Ben Rothwell vs. Brendan Schaub
Travis Browne vs. Chad Griggs
Rory MacDonald vs. Che Mills
