A non-welterweight contest has been linked to UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz, as Mitch Gagnon takes on Issei Tamura. Joe Ferraro of SportsNet confirmed the fight via Twitter recently.
UFC 158 takes place March 16 from Montreal. The main event will see UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre defend his title against Nick Diaz.
Gagnon, a Canadian, is 9-2 in his career. He recently submitted Walel Watson to earn his first UFC victory.
Tamura (7-3) is 1-1 inside the Octagon, much like Gagnon. He was defeated by Raphael Assuncao in his last action.
