Ahead of the UFC taking Seattle’s KeyArena on December 8, a bantamweight bout has been added to the bill as T.J. Dillashaw and Mike Easton have verbally agreed to face off in a bantamweight tilt during the evening’s prelims.
Easton (13-1) is currently on an eight-fight win-streak, with his last three victories coming inside the octagon. After a contentious win over Chase Beebe in 2009, “The Hulk” took some time off and joined the promotion in 2011. The Alliance product has taken victories over Bryan Bloodworth, Jared Papazian, and Ivan Menjivar during his UFC tenure.
Dillashaw (6-1), The Ultimate Fighter 14 runner-up, is undefeated since suffering a knockout loss to John Dodson at the season’s finale. The Alpha Male product has taken UFC wins over Walel Watson and Vaughan Lee in his last two outings.
