Two talented lightweight grapplers will meet in Montreal on March 24, as the UFC has announced lightweights Mark Bocek and Matt Wiman are scheduled to scrap at UFC 145 where each man will be looking to pick up a second consecutive win. Both 155ers can lay claim to a number of entertaining affairs in the past as well as to victories over a handful of highly respected opponents.

Bocek, who should clearly be a crowd favorite based on his Canadian heritage, was last seen at UFC 140 where he improved his record to 10-4 by outpointing Nik Lentz. Other wins on the BJJ blackbelt’s record include those over Alvin Robinson and Dustin Hazelett, while his losses have all come to top flight foes like Jim Miller, Ben Henderson, and Frankie Edgar.

Comparably, the 14-6 Wiman has been silently building up a reputation for himself as one of the toughest draws in the division with a 4-1 record in his last five plus success against Cole Miller and Mac Danzig.

UFC 145 does not have a headlining bout yet but is set to feature match-ups including Che Mills vs. Rory MacDonald and Ben Rothwell vs. Brendan Schaub.
