Bocek vs. Robinson at UFC 91

The news comes courtesy of a report on Sherdog.
Bocek, a jiu-jitsu standout from Canada, is 5-2 overall in his professional MMA career and 1-2 in three career UFC bouts. He debuted for the promotion at UFC 73 in July of 2007, where he suffered a first round TKO loss against Frankie Edgar.
Bocek then returned to the Octagon at UFC 79 last December during the undercard for Georges St. Pierre vs. Matt Hughes and Chuck Liddell vs. Wanderlei Silva. Showing improved overall MMA skills, Bocek recorded a unanimous decision victory over Alaskan Doug Evans.
Despite the note improvements, Bocek was unable to get past TUF 6 winner Mac Danzig this past April during UFC 83. After making it into the third round, Bocek was forced to tap to a rear naked choke.
Robinson, 9-3, is an athletic lightweight competitor who has not fought in the UFC since January due to an injury. Like Bocek, he is also 1-2 inside of the Octagon.
He debuted at UFC 73 in July of 2007 against Kenny Florian, who forced him to tap to strikes at 4:30 of round 1. Robinson rebounded with a unanimous decision victory over Jorge Gurgel at UFC 77 last October but was submitted at 3:39 of round 1 against Nate Diaz during UFC Fight Night 12 earlier this year.
UFC 91 will be headlined by the return of Randy Couture, who will defend his UFC heavyweight title for the first time in over a year against former NCAA and WWE heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar. A lightweight bout between Florian and Joe Stevenson is official as well, according to previous comments made by UFC President Dana White.

His two losses are to Florian and Nate Diaz, no shame in that.

I thought the Diaz fight went to the 2nd round, so you're right there.

While Bocek is a bit of an unknown to most people, from what I know, he is phenomenal with his BJJ. He just needs to be able to take some punches and work up some decent striking and he'll go places in MMA.

I'll take Bocek for this one.
