Former UFC gentle heavyweight title contender Thiago Santos will look to punch his means again into the win column reverse hot-and-cold 205-pound bruiser Johnny Walker within the UFC “Combat Night time” most important occasion on Sept. 25 inside APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.
That’s in keeping with MMA Combating.
Santos (21-9), now 37, was oh-so-close to taking the sunshine heavyweight strap away from Jon Jones of their tightly-contested affair at UFC 239, the place “Marreta” dropped a break up resolution. Sadly, his follow-up fights have resulted in consecutive losses to Glover Teixeira and Aleksandar Rakic.
The 29 year-old Walker (18-5) graduated Dana White’s “Contender Collection” again in summer season 2018 and shortly racked up three consecutive first-round knockout finishes. The hype quickly got here to a halt by the hands of Corey Anderson, adopted by a second straight loss to Nikita Krylov, earlier than Walker finally rebounded in opposition to Ryan Spann.
Santos is ranked No. 4 in opposition to No. 10 for Walker.
No different bouts have been introduced for the Sept. 25 struggle card, however you may count on that to vary sooner, relatively than later.
