UFC 158: TUF Finalists Colin Fletcher and Mike Ricci set for Montreal

mike_ricciA pair of The Ultimate Fighter runner-ups will square off in Montreal, as TUF: The Smashes finalist Colin Fletcher is set square off with TUF 16‘s Mike Ricci. The bout will likely land on the evening’s undercard, but there is no official word yet. MMAJunkie first reported the meeting.

Mike Ricci will be returning to his more natural weight class when he drops to lightweight to face Fletcher. The TriStar product lobbied hard for a spot on the his hometown card. Despite the size disadvantage, Ricci made it to the finals of TUF 16 only to drop a decision to Colton Smith.

Colin Fletcher was one of the most colorful characters on TUF: The Smashes with his unorthodox personality and walk-out attire. “Freakshow” used his long reach and height advantage to make it to the finals before Northern Ireland’s Norman Parke defeated him at UFC on FX 6.

UFC 158 is scheduled for March 16 and will take place at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The bout will be headlined by a welterweight title fight between Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz, with Rory MacDonald and Carlos Condit co-headlining the card. The bout will feature yet another high profile welterweight clash between Johny Hendricks and Jake Ellenberger.
