UFC on Versus 4 Fight Card Grows with Matt Mitrione vs. Christian Morecraft


UFC officials are obviously busy at work putting together their summer events, as noted by a slew of fight announcements on Monday.

The latest announcement is a heavyweight bout for the promotion’s June 26 UFC on Versus 4 event in Pittsburgh pitting Matt Mitrione against Christian Morecraft.

“Big men collide as verbal agreements are in for 7-1 Christian Morecraft vs. undefeated Matt Mitrione in a heavyweight matchup,” said UFC president Dana White.

Mitrione is undefeated in his professional mixed martial arts career since emerging as a competitor on the tenth season of “The Ultimate Fighter.” All four of his professional fights have taken place in the Octagon, where Mitrione, a former NFL player, has slowly built up his level of experience.

Morecraft was similarly undefeated, at 6-0, when he first set foot in the Octagon. He has since gone 1-1 under the UFC banner, winning his last fight against Sean McCorkle at UFC Fight Night 24 in Seattle.

No clear headlining bout has yet been announced for UFC on Versus 4.
