Lightweight prospect John Makdessi (8-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) will meet "The Ultimate Fighter 12" semifinalist Kyle Watson (13-6-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) at UFC 129, MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned from sources close to the event.

Verbal agreements are in place for the bout with paperwork on the way.

Makdessi was rumored to be fighting "TUF 12" winner Jonathan Brookins at the event, but for reasons unknown, the matchup did not materialize.

Makdessi is the ninth Canadian slotted for the event, which takes place April 30 at the Rogers Centre in Toronto. A welterweight title match between reigning champ Georges St-Pierre and challenger Jake Shields headlines the pay-per-view event.

I think Brookins lucked out, because I had Makdessi winning with a tko finish.

Tough fight to call. I think Watson is like the Nate Quarry of his season. We didn't seem much of him, but I think he has more potiential then what we've seen.

That's too bad. Makdessi was going to shock a lot of people and beat Brookins and zuffa knew it.
