A potentially exciting taekwondo battle has been added to the already-stacked UFC 158 card in Montreal. John Makdessi will meet fellow striker Daron Cruickshank. The UFC's Canadian arm tweeted about the fight last night:
Makdessi (12-2) erased a two-fight losing streak with a solid unanimous decision win over Sam Stout at UFC 154 in November. The win improved his UFC record to 3-2 overall. Cruickshank (12-2) was a contestant on TUF 15, and has picked up two straight wins in the UFC thus far. The last one came via exciting knockout over Henry Martinez at UFC on Fox 5 last month.
