A pair of featherweights are set to do battle later this year in Indianapolis, as Diego Nunes and Bart Palaszewski have apparently signed on the dotted line to dance in the Octagon at UFC on FX 5. The show is scheduled for September 7.
Nunes (17-3) has gone 2-2 since joining up with the UFC after WEC‘s roster was folded in. He has defeated Mike Brown and Manny Gamburyan, while falling to Kenny Florian and most recently Dennis Siver.
Palaszewski (36-15) is an even 1-1 inside the Octagon, as well as in the featherweight division, after topping Tyson Griffin but falling to Hatsu Hioki in his last outing.
The Nunes-Palaszewski bout, the first linked to the card, was first confirmed by MMAJunkie. Nothing official has come from the UFC.
