Dillashaw, Easton clash at December’s FOX event

Bantamweight contenders T.J. Dillashaw and Mike Easton clash at “UFC on FOX 5” at the end of this year.

UFC officials announced the contest over the weekend.

The bout will take place on the preliminary card of the stacked event, though the match up is still an intriguing one by all accounts.

The event is set for December 8 in Seattle and features a lightweight title fight between champion Benson Henderson and top contender Nate Diaz, along with a co-main event between light heavyweight contenders Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Alexander Gustafsson.

The remainder of the card features two welterweight contests; the first features B.J. Penn vs. Rory MacDonald, the second features Matt Brown vs. Mike Swick.

Back to the bantamweights fighting that evening, Dillashaw finds himself on a two-fight winning streak after losing to John Dodson in the finals of “The Ultimate Fighter 14.”

Meanwhile, Easton looks to build on his perfect UFC record (3-0) as he has quickly become one of the top bantamweights in the promotion, edging in on a potential shot at the title.
