UFC 168 gets another heavyweight bout. UFC officials have announced that Guto Inocente will finally make his UFC debut against Shane del Rosario on the UFC’s annual new years card. Inocente comes by way of the Strikeforce merger, and he hasn’t been back in the cage since the final Strikeforce event. He comes into the bout with a record of 6-2 and riding a four fight winning streak. Del Rosario is most likely in a win or go home match as he has dropped his last two bouts by way of knockout. When del Rosario climbs back in the octagon it will be a little more than a year since he last fought as well.
