A bantamweight match-up has been added to the already stacked UFC on FOX 5 fight card.
The UFC announced over the weekend that verbal agreements were in place for a fight between T.J. Dillashaw (6-1) and Mike Easton (13-1).
Dillashaw was in the finals of “The Ultimate Fighter 14” and expected to win, but was upset by John Dodson. Since then he has gone 2-0, with wins over Vaughan Lee and Walel Watson.
Easton has won his first three fights inside the octagon and will look to keep his winning streak alive with a win over Dillashaw. Most recently, “The Hulk” defeated Ivan Menjivar at UFC 149 in July.
The bout between Dillashaw and Easton will take place on the nights preliminary card.
UFC on FOX 5 is set to go down at the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington on December 8. The main event features a lightweight title fight between champ Benson Henderson and Nate Diaz.
