It took a little while, but Lance Benoist finally has a date for his octagon debut.

After signing a multi-fight deal with the UFC this past month, Benoist (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is scheduled to fight Matt Riddle (5-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) at "UFC Fight Night 25: Battle on the Bayou."

UFC officials today announced the bout, though its placement on the event's fight card was not made official.

I have to admit, I didn't expect riddle to last very long in the ufc, but he surpassed my expectations

I hope Riddle stays healthy and can one day fight up the potential i saw in him on TUF.. the kid has some demons but put em on a wheel and they're the best source of energy
