Yet another heavyweight contest has been added to the rapidly filling UFC 121 card.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has confirmed with sources close to the event that Todd Duffee (6-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and Jon Madsen (6-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) have verbally agreed to meet at the event, and bout agreements are expected to be finalized shortly.

Featuring a heavyweight title clash between champion Brock Lesnar and challenger Cain Velasquez, UFC 121 is scheduled for Oct. 23 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

The main card airs live on pay-per-view.

The chiseled Duffee makes his third octagon appearance, and his first two delivered two of the most memorable knockouts in UFC history.

The 24-year-old burst on the scene with a seven-second knockout of Tim Hague in August 2009. The quick finish is officially the fastest knockout in UFC history, and the expectations for Duffee immediately rose to championship-level proportions. Duffee then returned in May where he dominated Mike Russow for two-and-a-half rounds before being knocked cold in the final frame of one of the greatest comeback performances in UFC history.

Meanwhile, Madsen hopes to keep his undefeated run alive with his third fight of 2010.

The H.I.T. Squad-trained fighter debuted for the UFC as a competitor on "The Ultimate Fighter 10" where he earned a unanimous-decision win over Abe Wagner before losing to eventual finalist Brendan Schaub in the exhibition bout. Madsen returned for his official UFC debut at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale where he earned a split-decision win over Justin Wren.

Madsen has since used his wrestling-based attack to earn decision wins over Mostapha Al-Turk and Karlos Vemola.

Good fight. Looking forward to seeing Duffee back in action, and I'm expecting to see him pick up the win over Madsen.

Wow the UFC is really putting on some great shows this year, I think this card could potentially break the record for PPV buys.
Think about it, Brock Lesnar is probably the UFC's biggest draw and he's facing an undefeated Mexican in Los Angeles for the main event. Jake Shields is the Strikeforce MW Champion making his UFC debut in a run for a title shot against GSP. Court Mcgee is well known by casual fans for having just won the Ultimate Fighter. Tito Ortiz is a big name and draw, despite the fact that he isnt that great anymore. Duffee has the record for fastest KO ever and is a chiseled HW. For more knowledgable fans, Gonzaga, Cote, and Thiago are interesting guys to watch as well.

UFC 121: Record Breaker!
