A heavyweight bout has been added to the upcoming UFC 155 fight card with Matt Mitrione taking on British fighter Phil DeFries on Dec 29.
UFC officials confirmed the fight on Friday.
Originally, Mitrione was scheduled to be part of the UFC on FX 5 card against Rob Broughton, but for unknown reasons that fight was cancelled and now the former Ultimate Fighter shifts to later this year
Should be an interesting fight. Mitrione hasn't fought in a while, and De Fries looked a bit improved in his last fight. Mitrione should still be able to keep his distance and work his hands/leg kicks and take a decision though, I think.
