On Tuesday afternoon, a welterweight bout between Claude Patrick (Pictured) and James Head was added to the “UFC 149: Aldo vs. Koch” roster. Eleven fights have now been confirmed for the Octagon’s debut in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Patrick is looking to bounce back from his first big league blemish. After posting a three-fight winning streak inside the Octagon, Patrick suffered a controversial split decision defeat to Brian Ebersole in December at UFC 140.
After losing to Nick Ring in his promotional premiere, Head rebounded to submit Papy Abedi last month in Sweden.
