John Makdessi vs. Kyle Watson, not Jonathan Brookins at UFC 129 in Toronto, Canada

Canadian heavy hitter, John Makdessi will once again fight on home soil when he faces TUF 12 semi-finalist, Kyle Watson at UFC 129 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on April 30th, 2011. Dismissing the rumours that the Canadian was set to take on TUF 12 winner, Jonathan Brookins.

Makdessi is undefeated in his MMA career and made his octagon debut last month, facing Pat Audinwood at UFC 124 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The Canadian won that fight impressively via unanimous decision.

Watson made it on to the UFC roster after defeating fellow cast member, Sako Chivitchian on the season finale show in December of last year. He was knocked out of the running to win the show after falling short at the hands of eventual winner, Jonathan Brookins.
