Another great fight has been added to UFC on FOX 5 in Seattle, as bantamweights Scott Jorgensen and John Albert look to get off their respective losing streaks this December. The bout was reported by MMA Junkie:

A bantamweight bout between Scott Jorgensen (13-6 MMA, 2-2 UFC) and John "Prince" Albert (7-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) is the latest addition to December's UFC on FOX 5 fight card.

Sources close to the event today confirmed with MMAjunkie.com that verbal agreements are in place for the fight.

While not necessarily a "loser gets cut" matchup, particularly in a division lacking depth, both men are in desperate need of a victory.

Jorgensen, who unsuccessfully challenged Dominick Cruz for the old WEC Bantamweight title, is on the first two-fight losing streak of his career. He was outpointed by current interim champion Renan Barao back in February, and hard-hitting Eddie Wineland became the first man to ever KO Jorgensen this past June at UFC on FX 3.

TUF 14 alumnus Albert is coming off a highly controversial loss to Erik Perez on June 1st, in which Albert was considered to have verbally submitted to an armbar by referee Kim Winslow. He was particularly upset given he did not tap, and while he was marked in the loss column, Dana White gave Albert his win bonus anyway. Prior to that he was on the wrong end of a come-from-behind submission against Ivan Menjivar. None of his professional fights has ever gone the distance. Albert is Washington-based, while Jorgensen is Idaho-based, so this is fight places a heavy emphasis on the Northwest region.

The fight is scheduled for the preliminary card, which will air on FUEL TV.
