A pair of lightweights have been added to the September event in Canada entitled UFC 165.
John Makdessi and Renee Forte will square off – likely on the prelims – September 21 from the Air Canada Centre. The main event boasts UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones defending his belt vs. Alex Gustafsson, along with a co-main featuring interim bantamweight champ Renan Barao vs. Eddie Wineland.
Makdessi (11-2) has gone 4-2 in his six UFC bouts, including a pair of recent wins. Forte (8-2) was a member of the first season of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil and has gone 1-1 in two Octagon appearances.
