Proctor vs. Marcello set for UFN 36
Although Joe Proctor and Cristiano Marcello were teammates on the live season of the Ultimate Fighter, the two lightweights will have to put any friendship aside, as they have been booked to square off at Ultimate Fight Night 36:
Joe Proctor will finally make his return to the UFC, taking on former TUF 15 teammate Cristiano Marcello at UFC Fight Night 36 in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil, on Feb. 15.
The UFC confirmed a initial report from Combate on Tuesday.
After a successful debut at TUF 15 Finale, when he scored a knockout win over Jeremy Larsen, Proctor (8-2) suffered a unanimous decision loss to Ramsey Nijem at UFC on FOX 5 on Dec. 8, 2012. Proctor was expected to face Al Iaquinta at UFC 159, but the bout was scrapped when both fighters sustained injuries.
