JFLMad with Matt Hamill Action Figure.

UFC Light Heavyweight contender Matt “The Hammer” Hamill is in a second battle at UFC 121 on October 23rd, beside his scheduled fight against former champion Tito Ortiz.

At UFC 121, teacher will meet student.

A light heavyweight matchup featuring former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz (15-7-1 MMA, 14-7-1 UFC) and the man he coached on “The Ultimate Fighter 3,” Matt Hamill (9-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC), has been added to the pay-per-view event.

Featuring a heavyweight title clash between champion Brock Lesnar and challenger Cain Velasquez, UFC 121 is scheduled for Oct. 23 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

Ortiz coached opposite Ken Shamrock in the third season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” and Hamill was one of four light heavyweights on “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy’s” team. Hamill defeated Mike Nickels in the opening round of the tourney but was then forced out of the competition due to injury.

Hamill enters the fight on an official four-fight win streak, though his December 2009 disqualification victory over Jon Jones is widely considered a defeat.

A former collegiate wrestling champion, Hamill has shown an impressive striking game in recent outings with a stunning head-kick knockout of Mark Munoz at UFC 96 and a “Fight of the Night” slugfest victory over Keith Jardine at June’s The Ultimate Fighter 11 Finale.

Meanwhile, Ortiz enters the contest in desperate need of a win.

Despite a valiant effort against Forrest Griffin at UFC 106 this past November, Ortiz is 0-3-1 in his past four bouts. Of course, all four bouts have been against former UFC champions.

Ortiz hasn’t tasted victory since October 2006 in a 69-second win over rival Shamrock at The Ultimate Fighter 3 Finale.

The positioning of the Hamill-Ortiz matchup on the UFC 121 card has yet to be announced, though the contest appears a likely a main-card affair.
