MITRIONE VS BROUGHTON, DE FRIES VS THOMPSON AT UFC on FOX 4

Two new heavyweight matches have been announced for UFC on FOX 4, which takes place August 4th.

The first sees Matt Mitrione take on the Wolfslair’s Rob Broughton. 

Mitrione goes into the fight off the back of a loss to Broughton’s Wolfslair team mate Cheick Kongo at UFC 137 in October.

Broughton is coming off back-to-back losses to Travis Browne and Phil De Fries, the latter at UFC 138 in the UK last year. He will almost certainly be released if he loses. 

The second sees the former UK’s Strongest Man, Oli Thompson, take on fellow British fighter Phil De Fries in what could also be a loser-leaves-town match. 

Thompson lost his UFC debut in March while De Fries has gone 1-1 in the UFC but has not impressed the organisation in either outing. His last fight saw him stopped early in the first round by debutant Stipe Miocic.

Flattr this!
