Walt Harris was in need of a new opponent for UFC Fight Night Ottawa after Aleksei Oleinik was moved to the main event of UFC Fight Night St. Petersburg and now he has one because Farah Hannoun is reporting that Sergey Spivak has accepted the short notice opportunity.
Harris (12-7-0) also enters the contest while riding a two fight winning streak, having defeated the duo of Daniel Spitz and Andrei Arlovski. Harris hasn’t suffered a defeat in over a year, with that last loss coming to Mark Godbeer at UFC 217 in November of 2017. Harris has picked up twelve wins as a professional MMA fighter and eleven of them have come by KO/TKO.
Spivak (9-0-0) is going to be making his UFC debut in this bout and does so with an undefeated streak that has lasted over four years. Spivak has competed nine times as a professional MMA fighter and none of his fights have gone past the second round. Spivak has picked up nine wins as a professional MMA fighter and half of them have come by way of submission.
