Russia’s Fight Nights Global has added another U.S.-based fighter with welterweight Dominique Steele (15-9) signing a multi-fight deal with the promotion.
Fight Nights Global officials recently announced the new contract, though a debut date and opponent for Steele has yet to be released.
“Non-Stop Action Packed” Steele made his UFC debut in July 2015, stepping in on short notice to face Zak Cummings at UFC on FOX 16 but suffering a TKO loss. Steele would then travel to South Korea to pick up a highlight-reel knockout win via slam over “Maestro” Dong Hyun Kim and netting a $50,000 performance bonus in the process.
Steele then stumbled through three consecutive decision losses to Danny Roberts, Court McGee and Luke Jumeau and was released from the UFC. However, he’s since rebounded with a decision win over French veteran Karl Amoussou under the Cage Warriors banner.view original article >>
