It was another busy day of fight announcements today at UFC HQ as matchmaker Joe Silva goes into overdrive to fill out the companies forthcoming events, and you can catch up with all of the latest pairings below.
First up was another fight on September’s UFC Fight Night 25 card aka ‘The Battle On The Bayeau’ which sees Tim Boetsch taking on Nick Ring.
Boetsch made his middleweight debut in May after cutting down from 205lbs and it appeared to be a good fit for him as he dominated Kendall Grove for three rounds. Meanwhile Ring, a member of the TUF season 11 cast has gone 2-0 in the UFCs so far, taking his career record to 12-0.
Other TUF stars will also feature on the card with TUF 13’s Clay Harvison being paired up with DaMarques Johnson, while TUF 12’s Cody Mckenzie goes up against fellow submission specialist Vagner Rocha.
Moving forward to UFC 136 in October, the debut of heavyweight fighter Stipe Miocic who currently has a perfect 6-0 record will come against the hard-hitting, iron-jawed Joey Beltran who’s currently 3-2 in the Octagon.
Finally there’s two more fight announcements for the newly announced UFC 138 event in the UK.
First off Anthony Njokuani will once again be up against English opposition after dismantling Andre Winner recently, when he takes on Paul Taylor in what’s sure to be another exciting stand-up battle.
Meanwhile another UK fighter Terry Etim will make his first appearance in well over a year due to injuries and will be looking to improve upon his 5-3 UFC record against Edward Faaloloto who’s 2-2 career record suggests he’s in for a tough fight here.
