The final month of 2013 is shaping up to be a great one, and the UFC has added an intriguing bantamweight bout to its Brisbane lineup. Alex Caceres and Mitch Gagnon, who both won at UFC 165 a couple of weeks ago, will fight each other at UFC Fight Night 33:

Caceres (9-5, 1 NC) is unbeaten in 5 of his 6 fights at bantamweight, and at UFC 165 vs. Roland Delorme he recovered from an early knockdown and submission attempt by Delorme to win a split decision. The TUF 12 alum had a win taken away from him earlier this year after he tested positive for marijuana metabolites following his fight with Kyung Ho Kang.
Gagnon (10-2) lost a thrilling UFC debut against Bryan Caraway in the largely not-thrilling UFC 149, but he's won his last two bouts by submission. His guillotine choke against Dustin Kimura put Kimura to sleep in what was an incredible back-and-forth round of action.
UFC Fight Night 33 airs live on Fox Sports 1 on Friday, December 6th (Saturday, December 7th in Australia), with Antonio Silva and Mark Hunt headlining the event.
