A heavyweight division affair could be the latest addition to the UFC Fight Night Atlantic City card according to MMA Fighting as Justin Willis faces Chase Sherman.
Willis (6-1-0) is currently undefeated under the UFC banner, having defeated the duo of James Mulheron and Allen Crowder. Willis also competed once in the World Series Of Fighting, defeating Juliano Coutinho by second round TKO at the WSOF 31. Willis hasn’t suffered a defeat in almost six years, with that loss coming in his professional MMA debut against Henry Solis at Ring Of Fire 34.
Sherman (11-4-0) has won two of his last three in UFC competition, but his last bout was a loss to Shamil Abdurakhimov at UFC Fight Night Shanghai. Sherman fought a total of four times in 2017, earning a record of 2-2-0 during that one year span. Sherman never left the first round of a fight prior to signing with the UFC in 2016 and that includes a win over UFC veteran Jack May.
UFC Fight Night Atlantic City takes place on Saturday, April 21 from the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey with Edson Barboza and Kevin Lee headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on Fox Sports 1.
