In a report put out by Fox Sports, UFC president Dana White confirms that the UFC on FOX 4 event set for August 4 will have serious implications for the future of the UFC’s light-heavyweight division.
The UFC boss took to email to address the FOX reporter:
“These fighters have a huge opportunity to show the world why they deserve to fight for the UFC title next. Winning isn’t enough at UFC on Fox. This division is so competitive these fighters have to look great to separate themselves from the pack. I’m expecting all of these guys to go all-out to prove why they should be next in line for a title shot.”
UFC on FOX 4 is set to take place on August 4 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. In the main event Mauricio “Shogun” Rua will square off with Brandon Vera and in the evenings co-feature Lyoto Machida will fight Ryan Bader.Tags: featured, mma, MMA NEWS, ufc, ufc news
