After suffering the first two losses of his professional career, heavyweight Jake O'Brien (10-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) will look for a return to the win column when he meets Christian Wellisch (8-4 MMA, 2-2 UFC) at UFC 94.

Sources close to the fighters told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the bout is close to being finalized.

UFC 94, which features a UFC welterweight title fight between current 170-pound champ Georges St. Pierre and 155-pound champ B.J. Penn, takes place Jan. 31 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

O'Brien, a former Purdue University wrestler, began his career with 10 consecutive wins, which included a 3-0 mark in the UFC. The 10th win came in a stunning unanimous-decision upset of Heath Herring in the PRIDE veteran's January 2007 UFC debut.

if they are heavy weights like they used to be they should go against cain or carwin and if they lose they should be out, there is not many fights that I would not watch for free and this is one of them. These guys are only fun to watch when they are getting beaten up.
