John Makdessi vs. Renee Forte added to UFC 165 in Toronto

A lightweight bout between John Makdessi (11-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC) and Renne Forte (8-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) is the latest addition to September's UFC 165 event.

UFC officials today announced the matchup.

Featuring a pair of championship matchups, UFC 165 takes place Sept. 21 at Toronto's Air Canada Centre. The main card airs on pay-per-view following preliminary-card bouts on FX and Facebook.

Makdessi vs. Forte likely will be part of the prelims.

Makdessi looks to continue his recent success and post a third consecutive wins. After a 9-0 start to his career that included his UFC wins over Pat Audinwood and Kyle Watson, he suffered back-to-back losses to Dennis Hallman and Anthony Njokuani. However, he then rebounded for recent victories over Sam Stout and Daron Cruickshank, both via decision, and now looks for his third straight win in his home country.

Forte, meanwhile, is 1-1 in the UFC since his appearance on "The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil" in 2012. In his first post-show appearance, the Brazilian suffered a submission loss to Sergio Moraes. However, after a drop to lightweight, he scored a decision victory over vet Terry Etim in his following appearance at UFC 158 earlier this year.
