UFC NEWS – Miocic vs. De Fries Added To UFC On FUEL 1
Someone’s “0” has to go…
Two undefeated heavyweight prospects will exchange leather this February when Phil De Fries steps opposite Stipe Miocic in Nebraska.
UFC Officials announced the matchup this afternoon.
“Undefeated heavyweights will collide as verbal agreements are in for 8-and-0 Phil De Fries versus 7-and-0 Stipe Miocic on Feb. 15 in Omaha, Neb.,” UFC president Dana White stated.
UFC on FUEL TV is set to take place in Omaha, Nebraska on February 15. No venue has been announced to host the event, but a welterweight match between Jake Ellenberger and Diego Sanchez will likely serve as the evening’s main event.
De Fries is a UK import with an undefeated record. He was last seen making his UFC debut at UFC 138 with a decision victory over Rob Broughton. A submission grappler, his first six career wins came way of submission.
Miocic is also coming off his UFC debut. He last saw action at UFC 136 taking out the very fan friendly Joey Beltran in an entertaining brawl he took on the judges’ score cards.
The heavyweight clash is expected to take place on the evening’s preliminary card.
