Thoresen vs. Mitchell set for UFC on Fox 6

Welterweights Simeon Thoresen and David Mitchell have been confirmed for the UFC on Fox 6 card in Chicago, Illinois on January 26th, 2013. Thoresen's management broke the news via Twitter last night.

Norwegian Thoresen (17-3-1) made an impressive start to his UFC career submitting Swede Besam Yousef back in April of this year. However UFC 152 proved less fruitful as he suffered a knock-out defeat at the hands of Seth Baczynski. Thoresen holds notable victories over fellow UFC welterweight John Maguire and Brazilian Fabricio Nascimento.

American David Mitchell (11-2) has made a disappointing start to his career inside the octagon, dropping decisions against T.J. Waldburger and Brazilian Paulo Thiago. Having been out of action since the Thiago fight in August 2011 Mitchell will be looking to get back on track against Thoresen. Previous to joining the UFC he had gone a perfect 11-0 in his MMA career.

UFC on Fox 6 will be headlined by a Flyweight title bout between Champion Demetrious Johnson and challenger John Dodson.
