Miletich Fighting Systems product Drew McFedries will reportedly take on newcomer Mike Massenzio in a middleweight bout at the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s inaugural venture to Omaha, Nebraska for UFC Fight Night 15 on September 17th.
The news comes from Sam Caplan of Five Ounces of Pain, who has confirmed the bout with Massenzio’s manager, Gary Marino. Massenzio has also reportedly signed a four-fight deal with the UFC following his departure from the International Fight League.
McFedries last competed at The Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale in June, where he brutally stopped veteran Marvin Eastman with strikes in the first round. Prior to that, McFedries has split his first four UFC bouts, knocking out Jordan Radev and Alessio Sakara while being submitted by Martin Kampmann and stopped by Patrick Cote earlier this year.
Massenzio suffered his second loss in twelve career fights back in May, when he was submitted by Danillo Villefort at the IFL’s last-ever show in Connecticut. The former standout collegiate wrestler also owns wins over current UFC middleweights Dante Rivera and Dan Miller.
