via cdn1.sbnation.com

TUF 11 veteran Rich Attonito will look to keep his momentum going when he faces Claude Patrick in Patrick's hometown of Toronoto at UFC 140 on December 10th. The fight was one of three announced for the card today. UFC.com shares the info:

Also on tap for Toronto, "Raging Bull" Rich Attonito and Claude "The Prince" Patrick have accepted a welterweight matchup.

Both men are, strangely enough, coming off a win over the same guy, Daniel Roberts. Patrick defeated him at UFC 129 by decision, while Attonito decisioned him at UFC on Versus 4. Attonito made his welterweight debut in that fight. He started off his UFC career with two straight wins at middleweight, but a decision loss to Dave Branch at UFC Fight Night 22 led to the drop in weight. Patrick is undefeated in the UFC thus far, with three straight wins.

The UFC also officially announced a previously-reported bout between John Cholish and Mitch Clarke for the UFC 140 card.
