UFC officials have announced that Shane Del Rosario will meet promotional newcomer Guto Inocente as part of the organization’s year-end card.
Shane Del Rosario last fought at the TUF 16 Finale, where he was beaten in the first round by Pat Barry. This being his second loss in a row in the UFC, he is in desperate need of a win against Inocente to maintain his position on the roster. The two losses broke an 11 fight winning streak, bringing his record to 11-2.
Inocente meanwhile will be stepping into the octagon for the first time, and is coming off of a four win streak. He last defeated Virgil Zwicker in Strikeforce earlier this year. He is now 6-2 in his MMA career.
UFC 168 will take place on December 28 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will be headlined by a middleweight title fight between champion Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva.
