This coming weekend the UFC are back in action with their fourth live event on the Versus network, and we’ve got a full rundown of the fight card for you below.
The card has been somewhat injury-plagued, and that’s resulted in a change to the main event, with Nate Marquardt now set to meet Rick Story instead of Anthony Johnson in his debut at 170lbs.
That still makes it a tough first fight for Marquardt in his new weight class, with Story currently on a six-fight tear through the division and looking to push himself into title contention.
A heavyweight bout between two kickboxing specialists Patrick Barry and Cheick Kongo also graces the main card, and this could prove to be an all-out war on the feet, or Kongo may make use of his more rounded skill-set to take Barry out of his comfort zone.
Another heavyweight tilt sees the heavy-handed Matt Mitrione looking to build on his three fight winning streak against Christian Morecraft.
Finally, middleweight’s Matt Brown and Jon Howard meet in what could prove to be a ‘loser leaves town’ match-up given that they have both suffered a succession of losses inside the Octagon in recent times.
