Rich Attonito makes his UFC welterweight debut against Matt Brown on June 26. | Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com
While not ratified by the promotion, a bout featuring heavyweight strikers Cheick Kongo and Pat Barry is also expected for the Versus broadcast. Additionally, former lightweight stars Joe Stevenson and Tyson Griffin will likely make their featherweight debuts at the event, as they square off with Javier Vazquez and Manny Gamburyan, respectively.
Brown fought through a rough patch in 2010, losing three-straight bouts last year. After beginning his UFC career 4-1, “The Immortal” was submitted by Ricardo Almeida, Chris Lytle and Brian Foster. The 30-year-old has finished each of his 11 fallen foes and has never been knocked out in his five years as a pro.
After three fights in the UFC as a middleweight, Attonito will make his Octagon debut at 170 pounds against Brown. “The Raging Bull” comes off the first loss of his UFC career to Dave Branch in December. Prior to that defeat, the American Top Team representative had gone 2-0 in the Octagon following a stint on “The Ultimate Fighter 11.”view original article >>
