Ramsey Nijem vs. Danny Downes Slated for UFC 137

Ramsey Nijem, a finalist on the 13th season of The Ultimate Fighter, has agreed to meet Danny Downes at UFC 137, the organization announced on Thursday.

UFC 137, headlined by Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz, will air live on pay-per-view on Oct. 29 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

The Palestinian-American Nijem lost to Tony Ferguson last month at TUF Finale via first-round knockout. The loss dropped his record to 4-2 overall.

On that same card, the 25-year-old Downes (8-2) lost to Jeremy Stephens in his UFC debut via unanimous decision. "Danny Boy," a product of Duke Roufus' Roufusport gym in Milwaukee, Wisc., went 1-1 in WEC, defeating Chinese star Zhang Tiequan at WEC 53.
