A pair of promising prospects will make their Octagon debuts at UFC 140, as onetime Strikeforce competitor John Cholish is set to collide with the undefeated Mitch Clarke at the Dec. 10 event. Sherdog.com learned of the matchup from a source close to the bout on Friday.

The lightweight clash will go down at the Air Canada Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, marking the promotion's second trip to the Canadian province in 2011. The promotion has yet to officially announce any bouts for the show.

After losing the first fight of his pro career in 2007, Cholish has been perfect, rattling off seven consecutive victories. The former Cornell University wrestler made waves this February when he pulled off a slick rolling kneebar against “Utlimate Fighter” alum Marc Stevens at Strikeforce “Fedor vs. Silva.” Most recently, the Renzo Gracie Jiu-Jitsu representative submitted WEC veteran Jameel Massouh with a guillotine choke on June 10.

Clarke has yet to taste defeat in nine pro outings. The Canadian has previously fought for both King of the Cage and The Fight Club and has only seen a judges' decision twice since beginning his career in 2007. Hailing from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, Clarke owns six of his nine career victories by submission.
