UFC Signs Top Flyweight Prospect

December 26, 2013 10:16 am by bjpenn.com staff 8 Comments

The UFC’s Flyweight division continues to grow, as it welcomes newcomer Louis Smolka (6-0, 0-0 UFC). The UFC announced the signing on twitter, where they also announced that his first opponent would be Alptekin Ozkilic (9-1, 1-1 UFC), another recent addition to its 125 pound roster. The two will be fighting at UFC Fight Fight: Rockhold vs Philippou, which takes place on January 15th.

Smolka has had an impressive early career, with all six of his wins coming by stoppage, his most recent win capturing the PXC title. He faces a good test in Okzkilic, who made his UFC debut at UFC on Fox 9, where he won a close decision over veteranĀ Darren Uyenoyama.
