John Makdessi Faces Kyle Watson, Not Jonathan Brookins at UFC 129

John MakdessiLightweight prospect John Makdessi will face The Ultimate Fighter 12 semifinalist Kyle Watson at UFC 129 after a rumored bout with TUF 12 winner Jonathan Brookins failed to materialize for the April 30 event in Toronto, according to MMAjunkie.

Makdessi (8-0) topped Pat Audinwood in his UFC debut at December’s UFC 124 in his native Canada to improve to 8-0, while Watson (13-6-1) rebounded from a loss to Brookins on TUF 11 with a win over Sako Chivitchian last month at The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale.

UFC 129 is headlined by welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre vs. Jake Shields and Randy Couture vs. Lyoto Machida and could also include featherweight champ Jose Aldo vs. Mark Hominick.
