Former UFC middleweight title contender Nate Quarry will look to win his second straight fight since returning from near career-ending back surgery when he takes on Kalib Starnes when the UFC ventures into Canada for the first time in history for UFC 83 on April 19th at the Bell Centre in Montreal.
The fight was reported earlier today by Mauro Ranallo on The Fight Network’s daily radio show. Ranallo stated that he had confirmed the bout with Starnes himself.
Quarry is coming off his second straight win over Pete Sell, whom he knocked out at UFC Fight Night 11 this past September.
Since participating on the third season of The Ultimate Fighter, Starnes has split his four bouts inside of the Octagon. Impressive wins over Chris Leben and Danny Abbadi have been countered with losses to Yushin Okami and most recently Alan Belcher, who caused a nasty cut over Starnes right eye at UFC 77 in October which ultimately cost Starnes the fight.
