UFC 165: Brendan Schaub-Matt Mitrione Receive New Toronto Date

Former Ultimate Fighter housemates Matt Mitrione and Brendan Schaub will face each other in September at UFC 165.

The heavyweight match up was originally set for next weekend, but an injury to Mitrione postponed the contest.

Now, they will square off September 21 from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, provided nobody gets hurt again.

Schaub (9-3) was a runner-up on TUF that year, falling to Roy Nelson in the finals. Mitrione (6-2) has won six of eight UFC bouts; Schaub is 5-3 inside the Octagon.

Dave Diebert first reported the new fight date.
