John Makdessi vs. Renee Forte booked for UFC 165 on Sept. 21 in Toronto



Another Canadian has been booked for a bout in Canada as Montreal’s John “The Bull” Makdessi will battle Brazilian Renee Forte in a lightweight contest.

UFC 165 takes place inside the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario.

The UFC promotion made the bout official today.

Makdessi (11-2) has racked up a series of unanimous decision wins over Sam Stout and Daron Cruickshank.  He will be looking for his third straight victory come Sept. 21.

Looking for his second straight win in the Octagon since his unanimous win over Terry Etim back in February, Forte will try his hardest to keep “The Bull” from moving up the 155-pound ranks.

UFC 165 will feature a Light Heavyweight title tilt between champion Jon Jones and number one contender Alexander Gustafsson.
