Walel Watson Vs. Mitch Gagnon targeted for UFC 152

A bantamweight match-up has been added to UFC 152 on September 22 in Toronto, Ontario as Walel Watson meets Mitch Gagnon. The UFC confirmed the bout on their official UFC Canada twitter account.

Watson (9-4) is currently on a two-fight skid, losing to Yves Jabouin and Ultimate Fighter finalist T.J. Dillashaw. Prior to the back-to-back losses, “The Gazelle” defeated Joseph Sandoval in his UFC debut. Now 1-2 in the octagon, the San Diego native is fighting for his place in the UFC.

After fighting gamely and going to war with Bryan Caraway at UFC 149, Mitch Gagnon looked impressive in his octagon debut, but failed to have his hand raised, succumbing to a rear-naked choke from the TUF veteran at 1:39 of the final round. Prior to the loss, the Canadian was riding a six-fight win streak, with all wins coming by stoppage. The Team Shredder product looks to get his first promotional debt in his homeland.
