Just two weeks after the controversial stoppage at UFC 115, the anticipated rematch between UFC lightweights Mac Danzig and Matt Wiman now has a date and a venue, as the two will meet again at “UFC Fight Night 22″ on September 15 in Austin, Texas.
Sources close to the event confirmed the news to HeavyMMA.com earlier today.
The immediate rematch between the two lightweights comes as a result of the controversial stoppage when the two met on the preliminary card of UFC 115 as a part of the Spike TV broadcast. Wiman locked on a guillotine choke early in the fight and suggested his opponent had succumb to unconsciousness. Referee Yves Lavigne called a stop to the fight, only to discover that Danzig was fully conscious. Following the fight, both Wiman and Danzig were in full support of a rematch later this year.
