Evan Dunham vs. Matt Veach at UFC 102

I_cfc_medium I_cfc_mediumTom Hamlin at MMA Weekly is reporting that a battle of undefeated lightweights featuring Xtreme Couture's Evan Dunham and the H.I.T. Squad's Matt Veach will take place at UFC 102 in August, rumored to take place in Portland, Oregon:

 A lightweight match-up between prospects Evan Dunham and Matt Veach is signed, sealed, and delivered for UFC 102 in August. The fight was first reported by fiveouncesofpain.com and subsequently confirmed by MMAWeekly.com.

Dunham and Veach both made their UFC debuts over the winter as late-notice replacement for other fighters. 

Dunham (8-0, 1-0 UFC), an Oregon native who trains at Xtreme Couture in Vegas, filled in for David Baron at UFC 95 in London where he knocked out the more-experienced Per Eklund in dramatic fashion in the first round.  The submission specialist surprised many with his heavy hands, and the fight was subsequently aired on the Spike TV broadcast.  Dunham commented on the matchup to MMA Weekly:


“I think it will be a good fight,” Dunham told MMAWeekly.com. “I think my overall game is better than his, as far as my striking and my jiu-jitsu on the ground. I feel both those aspects of my game are better than his, and my wrestling’s not too shabby either, so I think it’s a great match-up for me.”

A member of the Matt Hughes and Robbie Lawler-trained H.I.T. Squad, Matt Veach (11-0, 1-0 UFC) is a St. Louis-based wrestling specialist, who filled in for George Sotiropoulos on short notice at UFN 17 in February against Matt Grice.  Grice and Veach put on a fast-paced and entertaining scrap which saw both fighters rocked by punches from the other, but Veach ended up with his hand raised after a TKO stoppage that was nearly universally believed to be quite "premature".

This fight will likely end up on the untelevised prelim card for UFC 102.
