Nate Catone vs. Costantinos Philippou, 195 pound catchweight fight at UFC 128

Middleweight, Nick Catone will face promotional newcomer, Costantinos Philippou at a catchweight of 195 pounds on the preliminary card portion of the evening at UFC 128 in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 26th, 2011. Catone was originally paired with Dan Miller that same evening before he was moved to the main card to take on Nate Marquardt.

Catone stepped up at short notice to defeat Jesse Forbes last year via split deicison, and was forced to sit out for most of 2010 due to injury. After a long layoff he will look to get right back in the mix with a win.

Philippou was a part of “The Ultimate Fighter” season eleven cast. The Serra-Longo Fighter lost in the first elimination round to Joseph Henle. He has won his last seven professional MMA fights and will look to make it eight that night.
