Middleweight Nick Ring will finally make his UFC debut at UFC 127 in Australia, according to a report from CagePotato.com, when he takes on fellow UFC newcomer Riki Fukuda.

The undefeated Ring was a favorite to win the eleventh season of The Ultimate Fighter, but a lingering knee issue worsened after his decision win over eventual season 11 champ Court McGee, and Ring had to drop out of the competition. He ended up getting surgery in April to repair the torn ACL, and has been rehabbing from that procedure since then.

Fukuda is a 17-4 professional out of Japan, and he enters the UFC on a seven fight win streak and as the current DEEP Middleweight Champion.

This is great! I was wondering if injuries had caused him to retire from fighting. Happy to see him back! Fukuda will be a tough test for him though.

Very happy Nick Ring gets a chance in the UFC, but Fukuda is a game opponent, still though I am hoping for Ring.

Glad too see that he's with the UFC, I was wondering why the ufc didnt give him any fights after the show, considering he was a favourite and wasnt beat on the show.

Suprised? he beat the guy who won the show! And he did it with a bum knee as well.

He does have the worst nickname I've heard in a long time though.

I thought Court beat him. Well watching that episode where Nick pulled out, Dana didnt seem too happy with him.

I think he would've won TUF if had continued. If not for his knees, which have limited him in MMA for years, he certainly had the most promise of any fighter on the show that year.
