British lightweight Colin Fletcher will take on Georges St-Pierre's team-mate Mike Ricci at UFC 158 in March after the fighters verbally agreed a fight.

It will be a showdown of two Ultimate Fighter finalists after Fletcher agreed to fight Ricci in his home town of Montreal.

Ricci was the runner-up at TUF 16 after his defeat to Colton Smith, while Fletcher lost to Norman Parke in the TUF:The Smashes final last month in Australia.

Ricci's Tristar Gym team-mate St-Pierre headlines the card when he puts his UFC welterweight title on the line against Nick Diaz on March 16.
