Francis Carmont impressed observers in his most recent fight. The performance has earned him a bout in his hometown.

Carmont and "Filthy" Tom Lawlor have agreed to meet in a middleweight matchup at UFC 154 on Nov. 17 at Montreal's Bell Centre, according to MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani.

Carmont, who trains at Montreal's Tri Star Gym, is 3-0 in the UFC. His most recent victory was a strong second-round submission win over Karlos Veloma. Carmont has won eight straight fights, seven via finish inside of two rounds.

Lawlor (8-4, 1 no-contest), a native of Fall River, MA, is also coming off a highlight-reel performance. He earned knockout of the night honors for his 50-second finish of veteran Jason MacDonald on May 15. Lawlor has won two of his past three fights.

UFC 154 is expected to be headlined by the return of Carmont's Tri Star teammate, welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, in a match with interim champion Carlos Condit.
