Mike Brown Meets Daniel Pineda at UFC 146

Mike Brown at WEC 44
UFC 146’s main card may be full of heavyweights, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for the smaller guys on the undercard.

Former WEC champion Mike Brown will return to action on the May 26 card to face Daniel Pineda at UFC 146.

UFC officials announced the bout on Wednesday.

Following two tough losses in a row, Mike Brown righted the ship with a victory over former Ultimate Fighter competitor Nam Phan last August at UFC 133.

The former featherweight champion will look to keep on his current path when he returns in May as well.

Facing Brown will be two-time UFC submission finisher Daniel Pineda.

Pineda debuted and made short work against Pat Schilling in January, and then made a quick turn around to do the same thing to former WEC fighter Mackens Semerzier at UFC on FX 2 in Australia.

Now Pineda faces his toughest test yet in the Octagon as he squares off with a former featherweight champion looking to return to greatness.
