A bout with serious career implications has been added to UFC 145, as Mac Danzig and Efrain Escudero will square off on the preliminary card. UFC 145 takes place March 24 from Montreal, Quebec, Canada’s Bell Centre.
Danzig, on his Twitter account, confirmed the bout, posting, “Just signed to fight in March. Opponent is tough as hell, but they all are. Efrain Escudero, March 24, Montreal.”
Danzig (20-9) dropped a “Fight of the Night” bout to Matt Wiman this past October, seeing his UFC record fall to 4-5 overall and just 2-2 in his last four. Escudero, meanwhile, was a winner of The Ultimate Fighter before being cut by the UFC. He is 5-2 in his last seven, but just 3-3 inside the Octagon.
