3 More Bouts Offical for 106
 
THREE MORE BOUTS OFFICIAL FOR UFC 106
Monday, October 12, 2009 - by MMAWeekly.com Staff

The Ultimate Fighting Championship on Monday confirmed three more fights for the line-up for UFC 106, slated for Nov. 21 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

Confirmed for the main card is a welterweight tilt between perennial contender Jon Fitch and jiu-jitsu ace Ricardo Almeida. Fitch (23-3-1) is on a two-fight win streak with a recent swing bout victory over Paulo Thiago at UFC 100. Almeida (14-3) has also earned two consecutive victories, most recently a unanimous decision over Kendall Grove at UFC 101. Since returning last February, Almeida is 3-1 in the Octagon.

Additionally, welterweights Karo Parisyan and Dustin Hazelett will return to action on the main card of the Las Vegas event, as MMAWeekly.com first reported in August. Parisyan (18-5) is coming off a nine-month suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for the use of prescription pain medication prior to his fight with Dong Hyun Kim at UFC 94. Parisyan's victory was changed from a win to a no contest, and he was fined $32,000. Hazelett (12-4) injured his ACL in preparation for a bout with Ben Saunders at UFC 96 and was forced to sit out most of the year in recovery. In his last Octagon appearance, he submitted Tamdan McCrory at UFC 91.

Officially added to the undercard is a middleweight match-up between Kendall Grove and Jake Rosholt. Grove (17-6-1) saw a two-fight win streak snapped by Almeida at UFC 101 in August, bringing his Octagon record to 5-3. Rosholt (7-1) impressed in his last outing against Chris Leben at UFC 102, submitting the original "Ultimate Fighter" alum in the final round of their showdown.

Hazelett might sub Karo. Diaz wasn't able to but I wouldn't be surprised if Dustin pulled it off.

Almeida is out, Fitch says his next opponent is a huge name and they've been waiting a long time for this one.

Well, considering he & all the other AKA guys keep calling out Matt...

We'll see, I guess.
