With Tuesday’s addition of the lightweight affair between John Makdessi (pictured) and Renne Forte, 10 scraps have now been confirmed for the “UFC 165: Jones vs. Gustafsson” roster.
The September 21 event takes place inside Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada. Light heavyweight king Jon Jones defends his throne against Alexander Gustafsson in the night’s featured contest.
Makdessi will be riding two-fight winning streak into the Octagon. “The Bull” was most recently seen posting a unanimous decision victory over Daron Cruickshank at UFC 158 in March.
Forte scored his ticket to the big leagues as a contestant on the inaugural season of “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil.” Despite the fact he didn’t make it far in the middleweight tournament and lost to Sergio Moraes in his promotional debut at UFC 153, he’s been granted another go with the UFC.
The 155-pounders will meet in the card’s prelims.
Here is the event’s current lineup:
Mitch Gagnon vs. Dustin Kimura
Chris Clements vs. Stephen Thopmson
Mark Bocek vs. Michel Prazeres
Ivan Menjivar vs. Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto
