Fireworks await at UFC 145 on March 24th. The UFC always does an admirable job of matching up guys with similar styles to please the fans, and they will likely not leave disappointed when Canadian John Makdessi meets Anthony Njokuani. has the info:

Two of the most exciting strikers in the lightweight division have verbally agreed to throw down in Montreal, Canada at UFC 145 as Anthony "The Assassin" Njokuani takes on John "The Bull" Makdessi." Both men are coming off of disappointing December losses to high-level wrestlers, but should be able to show off their kickboxing chops against one another.

The 26-year-old Makdessi (9-1, 2-1 UFC) is coming off a disappointing first-round submission loss to Dennis Hallman at UFC 140, but will look to rekindle the magic of his bout before that, where he knocked out Kyle Watson with a highlight-reel spinning backfist at UFC 129. Njokuani (14-6, 1-2 UFC) dropped a close split decision to Danny Castillo at UFC 141, and will look to rebound with a noteworthy performance.
