Ricardo Almeida vs. Mike Pyle at UFC 128 in Newark, New Jersey

Brazilian submission artist, Ricardo Almeida and hard hitting grappler, Mike Pyle will meet in a welterweight bout at UFC 128 in Newark, New Jersey on March 19th, 2011.

Almeida will look to continue to establish himself at welterweight despite losing to former long-time champion, Matt Hughes at UFC 117 over the summer, something that he has since rebounded from with a win over T.J. Grant at UFC 124 just last month.

Pyle has rebounded in a big way from an early 2010 TKO defeat at the hands of Jake Ellenberger, pulling off a submission win over Jesse Lennox and a unanimous decision win over the then-unbeaten, John Hathaway.
