Australia native Brad Morris will make the drop down to the light heavyweight division to face UFC newcomer Jason Brilz when the Ultimate Fighting Championship travels to Omaha, Nebraska for UFC Fight Night 15 on September 17th.

Sources close to the fight informed MMA on Tap that both fighters had recently agreed to meet. The fight is expected to take place as one of the event’s non-televised preliminary bouts.

Morris was defeated in his UFC debut, losing to rising heavyweight prospect Cain Velasquez via first-round TKO at UFC 83 in April. The loss snapped a four-fight winning streak for Morris, who also owns a win over UFC veteran Kristof Midoux.

Brilz brings an eleven-fight undefeated streak into the bout. He most recently earned a first-round submission over Eric Jenks in May. Brilz owns victories over a handful of notable fighters, including UFC middleweight contender Jason MacDonald and “Ultimate Fighter” alumnus Alex Schoenauer.

Hometown Hero: St. Pierre Stops Serra in Montreal

One year removed from his original upset loss to Matt Serra, Georges St. Pierre was finally able to avenge the defeat, dominating Serra on the mat over two rounds en route to regaining his UFC welterweight title in UFC 83’s historic main event.

The raucous crowd packed inside Montreal, Quebec’s Bell Centre saw St. Pierre surprise many in the opening seconds of the fight as he opted to take Serra down. After being on the receiving end of an array of strikes, Serra eventually worked his way back to his feet before finding himself on his back once again.

Any chances for another first-round Serra knockout were spoiled in a big way. With a mouse forming under Serra’s right eye, the Long Island native came out from his corner looking to throw down at the start of the second round. St. Pierre unfortunately had a different idea.

St. Pierre scored yet another early takedown. Serra mounted a bit of offense once the fight hit the feet, connecting with a head kick. However with fatigue setting in, Serra was unable to capitalize, allowing St. Pierre to land a handful of stiff jabs before shooting in for a takedown.

Once on the mat, St. Pierre unleashed a barrage of unanswered punches and knees to the body that forced Serra to cover up and referee Yves Lavigne to ultimately stop the fight, handing St. Pierre the title that he likely should have never lost in the first place.

“My strategy going in was to make it a physical fight,” St. Pierre said in his post-fight interview with Kenny Florian, who filled in for usual color commentator Joe Rogan. “I wanted to make him tired as much as I could because I know have the conditioning. I was trying to mix it up as much as I could.”

Heavyweights Brad Morris and Cain Velasquez will clash against each other when the Ultimate Fighting Championship travels north of the border to Canada for the first time in history for UFC 83, which will take place on April 19th at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

The promotion officially announced the fight earlier today on their website.

The highlight of the event certainly be current welterweight champions Georges St. Pierre and Matt Serra unifying their belts in a main event rematch of their fight at UFC 69: Shootout last year, where Serra stopped St. Pierre with strikes to win the UFC welterweight title.

Morris, a King of the Cage veteran, is currently riding a three-fight winning streak. His last victory came over former “Ultimate Fighter” cast member Kristof Midoux at the Bodog Fight: Vancouver tapings in August of last year.

“Fighting in the UFC is the pinnacle of MMA, and thinking about some of the great fighters that have fought for the UFC is a humbling thought,” Morris told Thomas Gerbasi in the report. “The offer to fight in the UFC is recognition of all the hard work and sacrifice that I have put myself through, and it’s great that it’s finally paid off.”

Velasquez is a product of the American Kickboxing Academy and is a regular training partner of Mike Swick, Josh Koscheck, and many others that represent the gym. The Yuma, Arizona native has won both of his professional MMA fights thus far in his career.
