A lightweight match-up between British fighter Terry Etim (14-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) and Brazilian Rafael dos Anjos (13-4 MMA, 2-2 UFC) is close to being finalized for UFC 112 in April.

Sources close to the bout told MMAjunkie.com (mmajunkie.com) that both parties have agreed to the fight and hope to sign bout agreements shortly.

The match-up was first reported by British-based Fighters Only magazine.

A press conference formally announcing UFC 112 for April 10 in Abu Dhabi is expected for next Wednesday, according to Yahoo! Sports. The event could take place in an outdoor arena – constructed specifically for the promotion's first trip to the Middle East – which would mark the first outdoor show in UFC history.

I like this matchup better than Etim vs Siver because now both of those guys who I am a fan of can both win.

I think Etim should prolly get the tko stoppage here or win a UD with his striking and can probably hold his own on the ground with RDA.

Crazy to see these guys turn it around like the article said, both had suffered back to back losses but now have some win streaks going. Good for them.

Dos Anjos is the better striker and neither will submit each other. Dos Anjos by 30-27.

I remember seeing an Etim Vs Siver post. Was it that?

I think Pearson is fighting Siver now, not sure though.
