UFC heavyweight Antoni Hardonk (7-4 MMA, 3-2 UFC) will go for his third consecutive UFC victory when he meets UFC newcomer Mark Burch (9-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) at UFC 92, an event that takes place Dec. 27 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Sources close to Hardonk told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) of the bout earlier today.

The fight is expected to air on the un-aired preliminary card of the pay-per-view event.

Hardonk, a former kickboxer, made his octagon debut at UFC 65 and defeated Sherman Pendergarst via first-round TKO. The 32-year-old Dutchman then suffered back-to-back losses to Justin McCully and Frank Mir before recently scoring TKO victories over Colin Robinson (in just 17 seconds) and Eddie Sanchez.

He'll now meet Burch, a BodogFIGHT veteran who's undefeated in his past four fights. The Indiana native has fought twice this year -- both times in the Hoosier state -- with first-round TKOs over Chris Hanni (0-1) and Alex Rozman (0-6). Prior to those victories, he posted wins over the likes of Yoshiki Takahashi (28-24-3) and stand-out Xtreme Couture grappler Jay White.

Six of Burch's nine fights have come via knockout.

yeah ufc needs to sign some talent guys instead of these no namers. I'm seeing all these new guys coming to the ufc that dont seem like they are going to last.

UFC needs to get the good fighters out there in the ufc like jake shields and those peeps.
