Welterweight Clash Added To UFC Fight Night 113


A pair of welterweights will lock up at UFC Fight Night 113 as Charlie Ward is going to be in action against Galore Bofando.

Ward (3-2-0) is currently winless under the UFC banner, having been defeated by Abdul Razak Alhassan via first round knockout at UFC Fight Night 99. When Ward fights for the promotion at UFC Fight Night 113, it will mark the first time he has competed twice in the same promotion since turning pro in May of 2015. Ward did go undefeated during his time as an amateur MMA fighter, having earned wins over Alex Masuku and Lee Balmer.

Bofando (4-2-0) is going to make his UFC debut in this fight, having spent his entire professional MMA career until this point in the Ultimate Challenge MMA promotion. Bofando has only suffered two defeats as a professional MMA fighter, with both of those losses coming by disqualification due to illegal knee strikes.  Bofando will also be competing for the first time in well over two years, with his last fight being a win over Kester Mamba at Ultimate Challenge MMA 42 in February 2015.

UFC Fight Night 113 takes place on Sunday, July 16 from the SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland with no main event announced at this time. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on UFC Fight Pass.
