12-2 Cruickshank vs 10-2 Makdessi... UFC 158

A lightweight matchup that seems sure to provide fireworks has been added to UFC 158 as Daron Cruickshank (12-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) meets John Makdessi (10-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC).

UFC officials on Friday evening announced the pairing.

Featuring a welterweight title fight between current champ Georges St-Pierre and former Strikeforce title holder Nick Diaz, UFC 158 takes place March 16 at Montreal's Bell Centre.

The evening's main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook. It's currently unknown where the Cruickshank vs. Makdessi matchup will take place on the evening's lineup.

Cruickshank returns to action on the strentgh if a highlight-reel head-kick knockout of Henry Martinez at this past month's UFC on FOX 5 event. It brought "The Detroit Superstar" to an official 2-0 mark in the octagon following a preliminary round loss to James Vick in an exhibition fight on "The Ultimate Fighter: Live."

Makdessi looks to build on the strength of a November win over fellow Canadian Sam Stout. The unanimous-decision result snapped a two-fight losing streak for Makdessi, who had been undefeated prior to the slide. "The Bull" is technically 3-0 as a UFC lightweight as his two losses both came in catchweight fights.

Makdessi still remains best known for his spectacular spinning backfist knockout of Kyle Watson at UFC 129.

Really enjoyed Cruickshank's performance against Henry Martinez. Body kicked Martinez until he started to lower his guard, then BAM head kick! Cruickshank better take Makdessi down though.
