Mitch Clarke and Anton Kuivanen are set to meet at UFC 149, UFC officials announced on Friday. The card takes place July 21 from the Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
The headliner for the event will be UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, though no opponent for “Scarface” has been announced yet. Clarke-Kuivanen is likely slated for the prelims.
Clarke (9-1) is a native of Canada, as he was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He lost his UFC debut to John Cholish last December in Toronto, as Cholish earned a second round TKO.
Kuivanen (16-5) is also coming off a loss in his UFC debut, as the Finland-born fighter was defeated by Justin Salas. Prior to the Salas fight, Kuivanen had won nine consecutive.
