According to UFC officials, lightweights Anthony Njokuani and John Makdessi have verbally agreed to meet at UFC 145 this March, as the promotion made the announcement earlier today.
Njokuani is coming off a split decision loss to Danny Castillo just a few weeks ago at UFC 141, as Castillo was able use his wrestling pedigree to earn himself the decision win. John Makdessi is also coming off a loss, as he suffered his first career MMA loss to Dennis Hallman at UFC 140 via rear naked choke. Without a doubt, both of these hard hitting lightweights will be looking to display their superior striking skills, and rebound from their most recent performances.
UFC 145 takes place March 24th from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec Canada, although no main event has been set at this time. Stay tuned to BJPenn.com for more updates on the UFC 145 card.featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news
