It appears that Canadian UFC middleweight Nick Ring will get to fight on home soil once again, but will taking a step up in competition. Ring will apparently face off with Constantinos Philippou at UFC 154 on November 17th. Canadian press reporter Neil Davidson tweeted about the matchup a little awhile ago:

Ring (13-1) is coming off a close decison win over Court McGee at UFC 149. The TUF 11 vet is 3-1 in the UFC. Philippou (11-2, 1 NC) has won four straight bouts since a loss in his UFC debut, and is coming off a unanimous decision win over Riki Fukuda at UFC 148.
The bout could take place on the main card, but is more likely to air on the FX portion of the preliminary card.
