The talent-rich welterweight division will be on display on the main card of UFC 106 on November 21st, with two exciting matchups just made official this week.

First up, former world title challenger Jon Fitch will look to extend his two fight winning streak and stay on the road to another shot at the belt when he takes on former middleweight standout Ricardo Almeida, who is making his 170-pound debut.

Then perennial contender Karo “The Heat” Parisyan returns to the Octagon to take on rising star Dustin Hazelett in an interesting clash between a world-class judoka and a submission specialist.

Also signed for UFC 106, which takes place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas is a middleweight preliminary matchup between Kendall Grove and Jake Rosholt.

Tickets for UFC 106, which is headlined by the heavyweight championship bout between Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin and the light heavyweight rematch between Tito Ortiz and Forrest Griffin, are on sale now.
