Verbal agreements are in for a lightweight matchup between New Jersey’s own John Cholish and Danny "Last Call" Castillo May 5. Both men are coming off of December wins - Cholish scored a TKO of Mitch Clarke at UFC 140; Castillo took a late-replacement gig and earned the split decision over Anthony Njokuani at UFC 141.
Castillo (13-4) is a Team Alpha Male member that has only been bested once in the UFC, by Jacob Volkmann at UFC on Versus 5. He holds wins over Njokuani, Shamar Bailey, and Joe Stevenson. As mentioned above, Cholish (8-1) made his UFC debut at UFC 140 and defeated Clarke by TKO in the second round. He is currently on an eight-fight winning streak.
