A lightweight contest between Jacob Volkmann and Paul Sass is on tap for UFC 146, which is scheduled to go down in Las Vegas on May 26.
UFC 146 is expected to feature a UFC heavyweight championship match between Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem. Volkmann-Sass would likely be part of the prelim event for the card, though nothing has been made official.
Volkmann, a three-time NCAA Div. I All-American while at the University of Minnesota, holds a 14-2 record. He has won five straight fights inside the Octagon since back-to-back losses against Paulo Thiago and Martin Kampmann.
Sass (12-0) is 2-0 in his UFC career, including a pair of submission victories over Michael Johnson and Mark Holst. He has earned submission wins in all but one of his 12 career victories.
