A pair of UFC middleweights will collide in December.
MMA Island was the first to announce the news that Anthony Hernandez to face Dustin Stoltzfus on December 18 at a UFC event that has yet to be announced. The two fighters would confirm the reservation on social networks.
Hernandez (7-2) has just won a formidable surprise victory. In February, he weathered the storm against the Brazilian quadruple Jiu Jitsu world champion Rodolfo Vieira and caused the surprise by submitting him to the second round. This victory will appear on many lists at the end of the year. Prior to his mind-blowing submission, he lost to Kevin Holland at UFC Fight Night: Overeem to Harris last May. “Fluffy” was due to fight Punahele Soriano in June, but an injury forced Hernandez to retire.
Stoltzfus (13-3) is looking for his first UFC win and could fight for his job in December. After securing a UFC contract on season four of Dana White Contender Series by beating Joseph Pyfer, Stolzfus went 0-2. He lost his Octagon debut to Kyle Dauakaus by unanimous decision and was subdued by Vieira on his last outing.
No venue, venue, or broadcast plan has been officially announced for the December 18 event, but UFC President Dana White has said all Fight Nights will remain at the Apex in Las Vegas, NV. .
The December 18 card currently only has two other fights scheduled.
- Amanda Lemos vs. Nina Ansaroff
