A lightweight battle between Canadian native Mitch Clarke and Finnish grappler Anton Kuivanen has been booked for the UFC's debut in Calgary, Alberta.
The promotion announced the bout for UFC 149 on July 21 early this morning. The event will be headlined by Jose Aldo making another defense of his UFC featherweight title against an opponent to be named.
Both Clarke and Kuivanen excelled in their respective regionial circuits before falling in their UFC debuts. Clarke suffered a second-round TKO loss to John Cholish at UFC 140 in December while Kuivanen dropped a unanimous decision to Justin Salas at UFC on FUEL TV 1 in February.
