The quickly filling UFC on Versus 1 fight card has another addition now that Mike Pierce (10-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and Rob Kimmons (22-5 MMA, 2-2 UFC) have agreed to a welterweight fight at the March 21 event.

Sources close to both of the competitors told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) the fight is close to finalized.

UFC on Versus 1 takes place at the Odeum Colorado in Broomfield (near Denver), and the main card, including a headliner of Jon Jones vs. Brandon Vera, airs on Versus.

Pierce vs. Kimmons is expected to be part of the night's un-aired preliminary card.

It is, tough debut though facing a big wrestler like pierce. I like Kimmons but I think Pierce will have the stand up and wrestling advantage whereas kimmons will have the submissions. Idk if the UFC would keep Kimmons on the roster if he suffered back to back losses but one loss at MW and the other at WW or give him another chance at WW.
