A lightweight matchup that seems sure to provide fireworks has been added to UFC 158 as Daron Cruickshank (12-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) meets John Makdessi (10-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC).

UFC officials on Friday evening announced the pairing.

Featuring a welterweight title fight between current champ Georges St-Pierre and former Strikeforce title holder Nick Diaz, UFC 158 takes place March 16 at Montreal's Bell Centre.

This is a sick fight! Both guys have KO power and technical stand up! I like Makdessi but not gonna count out Cruickshank that's for sure.

stand up lovers dream !!! i think cruickshank is the more well rounded guy, if he mixes in some takedowns then he should win.

Fucking great match up though, shame someone has to lose.

To me it just seems that the ufc are making better and better match ups and more frequently...just awesome

This is good matchmaking. Good step up for Cruickshank. I'll be routing for Cruickshank on this one.

Heard about this while clothes shopping. Totally headbutted a mannequin. Fantastic matchup.
