A pair of middleweights will do battle inside the Octagon at UFC On Fox 26 as Oluwale Bamgbose looks to pick up the victory against Alessio Di Chirico.
Bamgbose (6-3-0) has won just one of four fights under the UFC banner, with those three losses coming to Uriah Hall, Cezar Ferreira and Paulo Henrique Costa. Bamgbose also competed five times in the Ring Of Combat promotion, winning all five of the fights he competed in. Bamgbose has only seen just one of his nine professional MMA fights go the distance and that one fight came against Cezar Ferreira at UFC On Fox 19.
Di Chirico (10-2-0) has won just one of three fights thus far in his UFC tenure, with that lone win coming over Garreth McClellan at UFC On Fox 21. Di Chirico also competed twice in the Storm Fighting Championships, defeating the duo of Daniele D’Angelo and Cristian Magro. Di Chirico won the 2014 IMMAF Middleweight World Championship as an amateur, defeating Elvind Kjonsvik in the finals.
UFC On Fox 26 takes place on Saturday, December 16 from the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada with no main event announced at this time. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
