ALEX VOLKANOVSKI TO FACE JON TUCK
IN UFC FIGHT NIGHT® MANILA: LAMAS VS PENN
15 September 2016
Due to an injury, Mehdi Baghdad, who was set to face Jon “Super Saiyan” Tuck, will be replaced by Alex “The Hulk” Volkanovski (13-1-0, fighting out of Phuket, Thailand) in UFC FIGHT NIGHT® Manila: LAMAS vs PENN. Both fighters have verbally agreed to the new match up.
Volkonovski is widely considered to become the No. 1- ranked pound-for-pound fighter from Australia. A world mixed martial arts (MMA) champion, Volkonovski is currently on a ten-fight winning streak, nine of which coming either via knockout or submission. He is excited to put on a show for fight fans as he makes his UFC debut and will be looking for another finish using his trademark overhand right.
