TUF 11 veteran Rich Attonito will look to keep his momentum going when he faces Claude Patrick in Patrick’s hometown of Toronoto at UFC 140 on December 10th. The fight was one of three announced for the card today.
Both men are, strangely enough, coming off a win over the same guy, Daniel Roberts. Patrick defeated him at UFC 129 by decision, while Attonito decisioned him at UFC on Versus 4. Attonito made his welterweight debut in that fight. He started off his UFC career with two straight wins at middleweight, but a decision loss to Dave Branch at UFC Fight Night 22 led to the drop in weight. Patrick is undefeated in the UFC thus far, with three straight wins.
