Mitch Gagnon will make his long-awaited UFC debut in Calgary at UFC 149, according to Sportsnet. Gagnon (8-1) will take on Brian Caraway (16-5) on the June 21st card.

Gagnon was due to face Johnny Bedford earlier this year before visa issues stopped Mitch from crossing the border. ┬áCanada’s fourth ranked Bantamweight last fought five months ago at Ringside 12 where he stopped Bo Harris in the first round.

Caraway, who was on The Ultimate Fighter 14, won his UFC debut against Dustin Neace last December at the TUF 14 Finale.

    Caraway is a good opponent for Mitch. Caraway is still working on the mental part of his game, and Mitch brings a lot of heat which can break guys.

    Great fight.

    He dont want Mitch s ground game , Caraway is a submission guy , lots of wins by tap , but he might want to keep it standing with Gagnon or he will tap like EVERY 1 ELSE in the 1st !! Caraway wont last the 1st rnd !
