Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belts Dustin Hazelett and Mark Bocek have agreed to meet in a lightweight contest at UFC 124 on Dec. 11 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

Cagepotato.com was the first to report the bout on Wednesday; Sherdog.com has also confirmed the fight through sources close to the matchup.

Hazelett, who’s making his return to the 155-pound division since 2007, has had back-to-back losses against Rick Story (at UFC 117 in August) and Paul Daley (at UFC 108 in January). Prior to that, the 24-year-old Jorge Gurgel-trained fighter had won five of his six outings, including two “submission of the night” worthy turns against Josh Burkman and Tamden McCrory.

Toronto native Bocek, credited as Canada’s first Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt, last appeared in the Octagon against Jim Miller at UFC 111 last March. Miller earned a unanimous decision over the 28-year-old Nova Uniao rep, who had submitted his previous three opponents in the Octagon.

A rematch between UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre and Josh Koscheck -- currently rival coaches on “The Ultimate Fighter 12” on Spike TV -- will anchor the event. St. Pierre took a unanimous decision over the collegiate wrestler at UFC 74 in August 2007.
