Toronto’s Misha Cirkunov meets 205-pound newcomer Alex Nicholson at UFC 196 in Las Vegas



The UFC’s Super Bowl weekend card is starting to shapen with new additions the past week.   The event will now feature a big light heavyweight clash between Toronto standout Misha Cirkunov and UFC newcomer Alex Nicholson.

UFC 196 takes place Feb. 6 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Cirkunov rides five straight wins, including his UFC debut this past August with a first-round knockout of Daniel Jolly at UFC Fight Night 74 in Saskatoon, Canada.  He has an impressive resume and is looking for a second victory inside the Octagon.

Nicholson, from Florida, has all six of his career wins by stoppage with five knockouts and a submission. He went 3-0 in 2015 with three knockouts in his home state.

With the addition, the latest UFC 196 lineup now includes:

Champ Fabricio Werdum vs. Cain Velasquez – for heavyweight championship
Johny Hendricks vs. Stephen Thompson
Roy Nelson vs. Jared Rosholt
Josh Burkman vs. K.J. Noons
