The Ultimate Fighting Championship held a press conference on Tuesday to officially announce that UFC 152 will take place on September 22nd in Toronto. Tickets for the event will go on-sale this week. UFC officials announced that two additional bouts have joined the fight card.

Undefeated submission specialist Jimy Hettes will face off against Marcus Brimage. Hettes (10-0) has recorded nine of his ten career wins by submission. He last competed at UFC 141 where he earned an impressive decision win over Nam Phan. Brimage (5-1) was a cast member on Season 14 of The Ultimate Fighter 14. He has won both of his bouts inside the octagon by outpointing Stephen Bass and Maximo Blanco.

Verbal agreements are also in place for a welterweight battle between Seth Baczynski and Simeon Thoresen. Baczynski (17-8) is a veteran of Season 11 of The Ultimate Fighter. He has won his last five fights with four of the victories coming by stoppage. Thoresen (17-2-1) enjoyed a successful promotional debut at UFC on Fuel TV 2 when he submitted Besam Yousef in the second round. He has now won 15 of his fights by submission.

UFC 152, which takes place from the Air Canada Center, features the conclusion of the four-man flyweight tournament. Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson will square to become the inaugural 125-pound champion. In addition, heavy-handed Brian Stann will meet the brash Brit Michael Bisping in a pivotal middleweight bout.
