A welterweight bout between Ricardo Almeida (12-4 MMA, 5-4 UFC) and Canadian T.J. Grant (16-4 MMA, 3-2 UFC) is being finalized for December's UFC 124 event.

Sources close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that bout agreements have been distributed and are in the process of being finalized. Showdown.ca first reported the fight.

UFC 124 takes place Dec. 11 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

The night's main card airs on pay-per-view, though it's unclear if Almeida vs. Grant is part of the broadcast.

Might be a matchup where someone is going to have to win with something that isnt their strength. Both pretty good grappling/submission guys and might depend who wins the stand up and controls the fight with attempting to go for the takedown.

Almeida clinches him to a UD.
