The latest bout added to the Montreal event is a pivotal middleweight showdown between Canadian Nick Ring and American Constantinos Philippou.
Ring (13-1) is looking to build his momentum back up after a loss – the first of his career – to Tim Boetsch at UFC 135. He started back on the right track with a unanimous decision over Court McGee at UFC 149 in July.
He’ll face Philippou (11-2), who is already riding a wave towards title contention. After stumbling against Nick Catone in his UFC debut, Philippou has been on a tear, reeling off four consecutive victories.
Georges St-Pierre returns after a lengthy layoff to defend his UFC welterweight championship against interim titleholder Carlos Condit in the UFC 154 main event.
UFC 154 is slated for Nov. 17 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.
The Ring vs. Philippou bout was first reported by the Canadian Press.
