Lightweight “Ultimate Fighter” alums George Sotiropoulos and Jason Dent will meet on the undercard of UFC 106 on Nov. 21 in Las Vegas.
MMAWeekly.com confirmed the fight as signed, sealed, and delivered on Monday via sources close to the match-up.
Sotiropoulos (12-2) returned to action last month at UFC 101 after a yearlong injury induced layoff, submitting Ultimate Fighter season eight alum George Roop in the first round. A cast member of the reality show’s sixth season, he succumbed to season winner Tommy Speer by knockout in the semi-finals, but has since finished both of his fights inside the Octagon and will look to make Dent three in a row.
Dent (28-9), a veteran of season nine, won his first two match-ups on the show, but also fell short in the semi-finals to eventual winner Ross Pearson. Dent was one of only two contestants with UFC experience, having lost to Roger Huerta and Gleison Tibau in late 2006 and early 2007. Following the show, Dent rebounded with a victory over Cameron Dollar at the show’s finale in June.
