It looks like UFC on FOX 10 will be bringing some more excitement to the windy city.
Reports have confirmed that three bouts have been added to the fight card for the event: a heavyweight bout between Walt Harris and Nikita Krylov, a lightweight matchup between Eddie Wineland and Yves Jabouin, and another lightweight fight between Daron Cruickshank and Mike Rio.
Walt Harris (5-2) has only had one fight in the UFC, losing to Jared Sholt (9-1) via unanimous decision. He’s now set to take on Ukrainian submission fighter Nikita Krylov (15-3) who’s also lost his only fight in the UFC. It’s likely that the loser of this fight will be cut from the organization.
Having most recently been knocked out by Renan Barao (31-1) via highlight reel spinning back-kick, Eddie Wineland (20-9-1) will be looking to bounce back from his latest loss as he takes on Canadian knockout artist Yves Jabouin (19-8).
Mike Rio (9-3) dropped his last two bouts in the UFC both by first round submissions. If he loses his upcoming bout to Daron Cruickshank (13-4), it might be the last time we see him competing in the UFC octagon.
UFC on FOX 10 will take place on January 25th at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
