UFC 133 in Philadelphia is filling up fast. The latest bout to be announced pits wrestlers Johny Hendricks and Mike Pierce on a collision course on the card.
The UFC announced the match-up on Monday.
Johny Hendricks (10-1) will look to build on his last win at UFC Fight Night 24, where he TKO’d Anthony Waldburger in the first round of their fight in Seattle.
Overall, Hendricks has gone 7-1 during his time with the UFC and WEC, with his lone loss coming by way of decision to rising welterweight competitor Rick Story.
Challenging Hendricks in Philly will be fellow wrestler Mike Pierce (12-3), who currently rides a three fight win streak into UFC 133.
Pierce has looked very strong over his last few fights, which included victories over Julio Paulino, Amilcar Alves, and Kenny Robertson.
The bout between Hendricks and Pierce will likely occupy a slot on the preliminary portion of the show.
