Former Ultimate Fighter competitor Dustin Pague will look to make the ‘Chris Leben move’ when he steps into another fight just 2 weeks following his last fight in the Octagon.
An injury to Francicso Rivera has opened up a spot on next weekend’s UFC on FX 4 card, so Pague has accepted the chance to face Ken Stone in Atlantic City.
Pague follows in the footsteps of Chris Leben, who did almost the exact same thing when he was victorious in a bout against Aaron Simpson and then returned two weeks later to face Yoshihiro Akiyama.
Leben went on to defeat Akiyama as well and Pague hopes for the same kind of success.
Pague’s last fight at UFC on FX 3 ended with a rear naked choke victory for the season 14 participant on the Ultimate Fighter.
Can Pague go 2 for 2 in consecutive bouts?
Tune into UFC on FX 4 from Atlantic City next weekend to find out.
