UFC 162 Gains Norman Parke-Kazuki Tokudome

Lightweights Norman Parke and Kazuki Tokudome have signed on to face each other at UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman in July. Officials announced the contest on Wednesday night.

The event takes place July 6 from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The bout will likely be part of the prelims.

Parke (17-2) won the title of Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes last year. He was expected to compete last week before his scheduled opponent, Jon Tuck, was forced out.

Tokudome (12-3-1) earned a win in his Octagon debut this past March over Cristiano Marcello.
