A light heavyweight fight between Andre Gusmao (5-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) and Antonio Mendes (15-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) has been added to UFC 93, an event that takes place Jan. 17 at The 02 in Dublin, Ireland.

The match-up was first reported in the Oct. 13 edition of Wrestling Observer.

The 205-pound match-up complements the night's main event between light heavyweights Dan Henderson and Rich Franklin, as well as a co-main event of Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs. Mark Coleman.

I think this match up is more exciting than the other both mendes had rumored about with the guy that was like 10-2.

These are both guys that i had picked to have a pretty good future in the UFC. I didnt pick Mendes to win his last fight but i definately expected Gusmao to dominate.

This match is a toss up to me. I still hope that the guy who wins does well in the future.
