A new fight has been made for UFC Fight Night 50, as Chris Beal will face Dustin Kimura.
Set for September 5 from Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut, the main card airs on FOX Sports 1 with a headline fight between Gegard Mousasi and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza.
Beal was expected to meet Rob Font, while Kimura and Ian Entwistle were original foes. After injuries to Font and Entwistle, the two will meet in a bantamweight fight.
Beal (9-0) won his Octagon debut this past April, landing a flying knee on Patrick Williams. Kimura (11-2) has split his last four, defeating Chico Camus and Jon Delos Reyes, while falling to George Roop and Mitch Gagnon.
