A pair of fighters coming off impressive Octagon debuts will compete at UFC Fight Night 50 this September, as Rob Font meets Chris Beal.
Set for September 5 from the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut, the event currently features Gegard Mousasi and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in the main event.
Font (11-1) knocked out George Roop earlier this month, earning his ninth 10th straight victory. The win earned him a “Performance of the Night” bonus in his debut.
Beal (9-0) earned the call to the UFC, downing Patrick Williams with a flying knee that also scored him a “Performance” bonus. He was on The Ultimate Fighter with Ronda Rousey prior to signing with the UFC. Beal talked with FightLine recently about his victory over Williams and path to the promotion.
