Jacob Volkmann vs. Paul Sass Set For UFC 146

February 21, 2012 11:41 am by Pedro Carrasco

The latest addition to the ever growing UFC 146 card is set between two lightweight fighters.

Both Jacob Volkmann and Paul Sass have agreed to square off in Las Vegas.

UFC 146 is set to take place on in May’s UFC 146 event set to take place in Las Vegas Nevada’s MGM Grand Garden Arena. In the main event UFC heavyweight champion, Junior Dos Santos will attempt to defend his title against Alistair Overeem.

After a less than perfect start in the UFC’s welterweight division, Jacob Volkmann has looked unstoppable amongst the promotions lightweights. Now riding a five-fight win streak, he will desperately look to gain a sixth straight win and prove to UFC matchmakers he belongs on the mix at 155. We last saw Volkmann up against the always game Efrain Escudero at UFC 141.

Sass is a British fighter who brings a solid 12-fight win streak into the matchup. We last saw him in action taking out Michael Johnson via heel hook at UFC on Versus 6 this past October. He has since been forced on the shelf due to injury but now with this recent booking to fight his ailments must be behind him.

No word on the bouts placement on the evening’s card but it will likely be thrown on the FX preliminary card broadcast. (Continue to page 2 to read the “Editors Breakdown”)
