MMA

A pair of heavyweights are set to collide at UFC On Fox 25 as Damian Grabowski is going to be in action against Christian Colombo. This fight was originally set for UFC Fight Night 109, but both fighters pulled out of the fight due to injuries.

Colombo (8-2-1) is currently winless under the UFC banner, suffering a defeat to Luis Henrique and fighting Jarjis Danho to a majority draw. Colombo fought one UFC veteran before signing with the promotion last year, which was a loss to Viktor Pesta at European MMA 1. It has been almost two years since the last time Colombo earned a victory, which came at Real Fight Championships 3 in December 2015.
