Former “Ultimate Fighter” competitor Marc Stevens will meet Wall Street stockbroker and Team Renzo Gracie student John Cholish in an undercard bout at the upcoming Strikeforce show going down Feb 12 in New Jersey.

The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the match-up on Friday. MMAJunkie.com first reported the fight.

Marc Stevens (12-5) makes his first appearance since his time of the “Ultimate Fighter” season 12, where he was coached by Josh Koscheck during his stint on the show. Stevens was the No. 1 overall pick by Koscheck, but fell short in both chances during his time in the house.

Stevens was submitted by Cody McKenzie and then Aaron Wilkinson on the show, and now hopes to erase the memory of that when he comes back in February.

John Cholish (5-1) makes the move to Strikeforce after a successful run in local shows primarily fighting in New Jersey. Cholish trains under John Danaher at the Renzo Gracie Academy in New York City.

Cholish is a full-time stockbroker during the day, and trains at night and believes he’s ready for the next step up in competition. That will happen on Feb 12.

The bout between Stevens and Cholish will be a part of the undercard for the all heavyweight main card taking place in New Jersey as the kick-off to the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix.
