A lightweight matchup between Canadian Mark Bocek (11-4 MMA, 7-4 UFC) and Brazilian Rafael dos Anjos (17-6 MMA, 6-4 UFC) has been added to UFC 154.

UFC officials today announced the new contest.

While a main event for UFC 154 has not yet been announced, the card is expected to feature the unification bout between UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and interim titleholder Carlos Condit. The card takes place Nov. 17 at Montreal's Bell Centre.

I really like this match! RDA has been tearing it up lately, and Bocek is unquestionably a high level mixed martial artist. Potential hot bout right hurr

I agree, it could be quite boring unless Dos Anjos can stay away from cage and stuff TD's because he deffs has the striking and power to beat Bocek.

I really like both these guys I think it all depends on if Bocek can seal the takedowns and keep a dominant position because if he cant he is in some serious trouble Dos Anjos will RIP him apart standing up

Idk know if Bocek can get RDA down or down consistently. Bocek not the strongest grappler/wrestler.

RDA has better striking and submissions.

I actually think this was a mismatch.

I have always been a big RDA fan. RDA is a well-rounded, exciting fighter. Bocek is tough as well, but I don't think he will have what it takes to beat RDA. Bocek's toughness will be enough to prevent RDA from finishing with his superior striking and submissions. RDA UD.

Love this fight!! RDA has maybe the most deceiving record in the UFC but could give anyone a real run for their money.
