Mike Pierce vs. Johny Hendricks confirmed for UFC 133 in Philly

Quote:
As expected, a welterweight bout between Mike Pierce (12-3 MMA, 4-1 UFC) and Johny Hendricks (10-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) will be part of UFC 133.

MMAjunkie.com first reported the fight this past week, and UFC executives since have made it official.

UFC 133, which also featured Rashad Evans vs. Phil Davis, takes place Aug. 6 in Philadelphia. The city's Wells Fargo Center is expected to host the pay-per-view event.

Pierce vs. Hendricks likely will be part of the night's PPV broadcast.

Hendricks recently rebounded from his first career loss, which came via unanimous decision to fast-rising Rick Story at The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale in December. The two-time NCAA Division I national wrestling champion scored a vicious first-round TKO of T.J. Waldburger that earned him UFC Fight Night 24's "Knockout of the Night" bonus. The WEC vet now owns six knockout wins in 10 career victories.

Pierce, meanwhile, recently picked up his third straight win with a first-round TKO of Kenny Robertson at UFC 126. The SportFight and WEC vet now is 9-1 over his past 10 fights, which has included UFC wins over Brock Larson, Julio Paulino and Amilcar Alves. His lone UFC setback came via decision to top contender Jon Fitch in late 2009. Pierce still has never been stopped in a fight.

The latest UFC 133 card now includes:

Phil Davis vs. Rashad Evans
Champ Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes (for featherweight title)*
Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Vitor Belfort
Rich Franklin vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Johny Hendricks vs. Mike Pierce
Jorge Rivera vs. Alessio Sakara
Michael McDonald and Nick Pace
Brian Ebersole vs. Dennis Hallman
Riki Fukuda vs. Rafael "Sapo" Natal*

* - not officially confirmed

Pierce vs Hendricks?!
I like this fight.
Winner moves into contender's teritory, no doubt.

The whole card looks great so far.

Cool fight. No one really knows who Mike Pierce is, but he's a very solid fighter and gave Jon Fitch a real run for his money.
