Another match-up has been added to the card for UFC on Versus 5, scheduled for August 14th in Milwaukee at the Bradley Center.  The UFC announced last night that talented lightweight wrestlers, Danny Castillo and Jacob Volkmann, would face each other at the event:


UFC President Dana White has announced another intriguing matchup for the August 14th event in Milwaukee, as two lightweight up and comers collide.

"In a battle between two top notch wrestlers, Danny "Last Call" Castillo will face Jacob "Christmas" Volkmann August 14 in Milwaukee," said White.
Danny "Last Call" Castillo (11-3)
Win Joe Stevenson (unanimous decision) - UFC on Versus 3
Win Will Kerr (KO-punch) - WEC 53
Win Dustin Poirier (unanimous decision) - WEC 50
Jacob "Christmas" Volkmann (12-2)
Win Antonio McKee (split decision) - UFC 125
Win Paul Kelly (unanimous decisio) - UFC on Versus 2
Win Ronys Torres (split decision) - UFN 21

Both men are on three-fight winning streaks, and it will be interesting to see how Volkmann's methodical, grinding style of grappling plays out against Castillo's powerful takedowns and heavy hands.
