Rory MacDonald vs. Brian Ebersole & Claude Patrick vs. Rich Attonito at 140

A welterweight bout between youngster, Rory MacDonald and veteran, Brian Ebersole as well as a welterweight bout between Canadian grappler, Claude Patrick and former middleweight, Rich Attonito have been announced for UFC 140 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on December 10th, 2011.

MacDonald has risen quickly up the promotions ranks since hitting the big time and most recently defeated another veteran in the form of Mike Pyle. His only defeat came at the hands of Carlos Condit via TKO with just seven seconds remaining in a fight he was winning. Ebersole took a lifetime to make it to the octagon but has certainly made a mark since he did, defeating a couple of veterans in the form of Chris Lytle in February and Dennis Hallman just last month.

Patrick is 14-1 overall and has won his three fights inside the octagon to date over Ricardo Funch, James Wilks and Daniel Roberts. His only loss came at the hands of middleweight slugger, Drew McFedries. As for Attonito, he dropped from the 185 pound ranks following a December loss to David Branch only to look ultra-impressive in a three round demolition job over Daniel Roberts.
