"TUF" semifinalists Jason Dent and George Sotiropoulos set for UFC 106 bout

A lightweight bout between former contestants of "The Ultimate Fighter" is slated for UFC 106 with season nine's Jason Dent (19-9 MMA, 1-2 UFC) set to take on season six's George Sotiropoulos (10-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC).

Bout agreements recently were signed by both competitors, sources close to the event told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

UFC 106 takes place Nov. 21 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The main card, including a headliner between UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and undefeated contender Shane Carwin, airs live on pay per view.

The Dent vs. Sotiropoulos fight will be part of the night's un-aired preliminary card.

Dent, an Ohio-based fighter, fought for the UFC twice from 2006-2007 but was knocked out of the organization with losses to Gleison Tibau and Roger Huerta. (Neither fighter, though, was able to finish Dent.) After posting a 5-1 record in outside organizations, Dent was invited back into the UFC via season nine of "TUF." He defeated Robert Browning and Jeff Lawson to advance to the semifinals but was stopped by eventual show winner Ross Pearson and knocked out of the competition. However, a come-from-behind win over Cameron Dollar at the show's live finale earned him a UFC contract, anyway.

Sotiropoulos, meanwhile, recently returned from a 16-month layoff and defeated George Roop via second-round submission at UFC 101. It was the Australian fighter's fourth straight victory overall and third straight in the UFC, which included stoppage wins over fellow cast member Billy Miles at The Ultimate Fighter 6 Finale and Roman Mitichyan at UFC Fight Night 16.


The latest UFC 106 card now includes:

* Champ Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin (for UFC heavyweight title)
* Mark Coleman vs. Tito Ortiz
* Luiz Cane vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira*
* Ricardo Almeida vs. Jon Fitch*
* Dustin Hazelett vs. Karo Parisyan*
* Marcus Davis vs. Ben Saunders*
* Phil Baroni vs. Amir Sadollah*
* Jason Dent vs. George Sotiropoulos*
