UFC 149 | Mitch Clarke Set To Face Anton Kuivanen


By Drew Graham:
A lightweight tilt between Mitch Clarke (0-1 UFC) and Anton Kuivanen (0-1 UFC) has been added to the UFC 149 fight card on July 21 in Calgary, Alberta. Jose Aldo will be featured in the main event against an opponent that is not yet named.

Clarke is coming off his first career loss via 2nd round TKO to John Cholish in Toronto. The Canadian native hopes to get back to his winning ways after going 9-0 in Canadian promotions. Kuivanen, the Finnish fighter, also hopes to rebound from a loss in his UFC debut, losing to Justin Salas via unanimous decision.

Clark and Kuivanen are expected to be on the preliminary card on FX or Facebook.
