UFC 158 Receives George Roop-Reuben Duran

UFC officials have added one more fight to March’s UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz card, as bantamweights George Roop and Reuben Duran square off. The card goes down March 16 from the Bell Centre in Montreal.

Roop and Duran will be part of the prelims, which air on FX and stream via Facebook. The match is likely to be part of the Facebook telecast.

Roop (12-9-1) has lost two straight and is just 1-3 in his last four. The losses have come at the hands of Mark Hominick, Hatsu Hioki and Cub Swanson.

Duran (8-4-1) has won just one of his three Octagon bouts. Both fighters are likely competing to hold on to a roster spot as the UFC continues trimming up the divisions.
