Matt Mitrione-Brendan Schaub Headed For UFC 165

Heavyweights Matt Mitrione and Brendan Schaub will try it again this September.

The two, who were originally set to meet next weekend at UFC on FOX: Johnson vs. Moraga, will now square off in September at UFC 165: Jones vs. Gustafsson.

Dave Diebert first reported news of the new date for the bout. The exact placement on the September 21 card from Toronto is unknown.

Schaub (9-3) is a former Ultimate Fighter runner-up. He has gone 5-3 in eight UFC appearances.

Mitrione (6-2) was on the same TUF season as Schaub. He was forced off the original date with an injury, and has won six of his eight UFC bouts.
