A welterweight matchup between Mike Pierce and Rob Kimmons has been agreed upon and is nearly finalized for “UFC on Versus: Vera vs. Jones,” which takes place on March 21 in Broomfield, Colorado, according to MMAjunkie.
Pierce (10-3) upset veteran Brock Larson in his UFC debut in September for his sixth-straight victory, but dropped a unanimous decision to Jon Fitch in December in his most-recent fight.
Kimmons (22-5) has gone 2-2 since joining the UFC in mid-2008, earning wins over Rob Yundt and Joe Vedepo, while losing bouts to Dan Miller and, most-recently in October, Jorge Rivera.
UFC on Versus 1, which airs live on Versus from the Odeum Colorado in the Denver suburb, is headlined by Brandon Vera vs. Jon Jones and also includes Junior dos Santos vs. Gabriel Gonzaga, Cheick Kongo vs. Paul Buentello, and Anthony Johnson vs. John Howard.
