Final Bout Added for UFC 130
By Justin Worsley,
A final match has been added for UFC 130, which will be hosted at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 28.
The lightweight bout, which will most likely be on the untelevised portion of the event, features former "The Ultimate Fighter" star Cody McKenzie and Bart Palaszewski, formerly of the WEC and IFL.
Palaszewski (35-14) will fight for the first time with the UFC, which absorbed the WEC last December. In the last WEC event on Dec. 16, Palaszewski lost a split decision to Kamal Shalorus.
McKenzie (12-1) is coming off of his first career loss, a technical submission by Yves Edwards at UFC Fight for the Troops 2 on Jan. 22.
Headlining UFC 130 is the Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard rematch for the lightweight championship.
