Canadian Mark Bocek and Ultimate Fighter 6 winner Mac Danzig are set to fight when the UFC ventures into Canada for the first time in history on April 19th.
The news comes from a report in The Fight Network’s Great Fight North column which was posted earlier this afternoon.
The fight will mark Danzig’s debut at lightweight. He announced his intentions to drop down to a lower weight class shortly after submitting Tommy Speer in the finals of the sixth season of The Ultimate Fighter. Bocek is coming off of a win over Doug Evans at UFC 79 a few weeks ago.
The two were apparently slated to meet earlier in their careers but a potential fight was scrapped after Danzig was upset by Clay French at a KOTC event last January.
