Matt Mitrione at UFC 119A heavyweight bout has been added to the upcoming UFC 155 fight card with Matt Mitrione taking on British fighter Phil DeFries on Dec. 29.

UFC officials confirmed the fight on Friday.

Originally, Mitrione was scheduled to be part of the UFC on FX 5 fight card against Rob Broughton, but for unknown reasons that fight was cancelled and now the former Ultimate Fighter shifts to later this year.

Mitrione instead faces Phil DeFries, who is coming off a win over Oli Thompson from UFC on Fox 4 in early August.

The two heavyweights will meet in a bout on the UFC 155 undercard for the show headlined by heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos vs. Cain Velasquez.
