Mitch Clarke vs. John Maguire set for UFC 161 in Winnipeg

England’s John Maguire will officially drop down to lightweight and fight Canadian Mitch Clarke at UFC 161.  The event will take place on June 15 at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The 155-pound contest was first brought to our attention by Chuck Wichert of Mitch Clarke’s management.

Maguire, who is coming off two-straight losses to Matthew Riddle and John Hathaway, will look for any opportunity to get back in the win column when he meets Clarke in June.

Same goes for Mitch Clarke who is riding a two-fight losing streak to the hands of Anton Kuivanen and John Cholish.  Clarke will look to stay far away from coming up empty handed in this bout as the loser could get cut from the promotion.

Needless to say, we will have a real barn burner on our hands when these two step into the octagon and fight for survival in the UFC.
