Default John Makdessi vs. Edson Barboza (UFC 162)

Quote:
A lightweight bout between strikers Edson Barboza (11-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) and John Makdessi (11-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC) is the latest addition to July's UFC 162 event.

UFC officials today announced the fight.

UFC 162 takes place July 6 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

It's not clear where Barboza vs. Makdessi will be situated on the lineup.

Barboza recently rebounded from his first career loss (a TKO defeat to Jamie Varner) after stopping late replacement Lucas Martins with punches at UFC on FX 7. Prior to the Varner loss, the 27-year-old Brazilian quickly moved up the 155-pound ranks by winning her first 10 pro fights, which included UFC victories over Mike Lullo, Anthony Njokuani, Ross Pearson and Terry Etim. The latter three all earned "Fight of the Night" bonuses.

Makdessi, meanwhile, looks for his third consecutive UFC victory. After back-to-back defeats to Dennis Hallman and Njokuani, the 27-year-old Canadian recently rebounded with decision victories over Sam Stout and Daron Cruickshank. Barboza, though, is a definite step up in competition.

The latest UFC 162 card includes:
Champ Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman - for middleweight title
Chan Sung Jung vs. Ricardo Lamas
Tim Boetsch vs. Mark Munoz
Frankie Edgar vs. Charles Oliveira
Dennis Siver vs. Cub Swanson
Roger Gracie vs. Tim Kennedy
Andrew Craig vs. Chris Leben
David Mitchell vs. Mike Pierce*
Edson Barboza vs. John Makdessi
Seth Baczynski vs. Brian Melancon
Shane Del Rosario vs. Dave Herman

Excellent fight. Certain to be a very technical battle on the feet. See it going similar to Makdessi/Njokuani, myself.
