TORONTO - Canadian lightweight Mike Ricci has been added to the UFC 158 card March 16 in Montreal.

The Montreal native will face England's Colin (The Freakshow) Fraser in a battle of runners-up from "The Ultimate Fighter."

Fighting above his weight class, Ricci (8-3) lost to welterweight Colton Smith in December in the finale of Season 16 of the reality TV show.

Fletcher (9-2) was beaten by Norman Parke the same month in the final of "The Smashes,"' a TUF spinoff that pitted Australian fighters against those from the United Kingdom.

Welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre of Montreal meets Nick Diaz in the UFC 158 main event at the Bell Centre.

Other Canadians on the card are Rory (Ares) MacDonald, Nick (The Promise) Ring, Patrick (The Predator) Cote, Jordan (Young Gun) Mein, Sean (The Punisher) Pierson, John (The Bull) Makdessi, Antonio (Pato) Carvalho, Mitch Gagnon and Yves (Tiger) Jabouin.
