Joshua Burkman vs. Alex Morono added to UFC Fight Night 126 in Austin


A welterweight matchup has been added to the UFC’s return to the Lone Star State.

UFC officials today announced that Joshua Burkman (28-16 MMA, 6-11 UFC) will face Alex Morono (13-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 126, which takes place next Sunday at Frank Erwin Center in Austin.

The contest is scheduled for the evening’s UFC Fight Pass-streamed early prelims following additional prelims and a main card that each air on FS1.

Both fighters find themselves in need of a victory. Burkman, 37, carries a four-fight losing streak into the contest after dropping consecutive UFC outings to Drew Dober, Michel Prazeres, Zak Ottow and Paul Felder. The most recent setback, a first-round knockout loss to Dober, took place in July, so Burkman enters the fight with a little less than seven months on the sidelines.

Burkman revealed his involvement in the card a little less than one week ago, insisting fighting is simply in his blood.
