September 5th’s Ultimate Fight Night 50 has taken shape recently by acquiring the co-main event fight of the now defunct UFC 176, the top 10 middleweight contest between Jacare and Kennedy.
The fights in Foxwood’s Resort and Casino also added the mega matchup of Heavyweights, Ben Rothwell and Alistair Overeem.
Now it’s officially announced another heavyweight showdown between “Meat Head” Matt Mitrione (7-3) and Derrick Lewis (11-2).
The Roufus trained former Minnesota Viking, Mitrione comes in having all of his fights inside the octagon and won his last bout by knocking out Shawn Jordan via KO at TUF China, and was scheduled to take on Stefan Struve at UFC 175 but Struve collapsed in his locker room about an hour before the pairing.
Lewis is a Bellator and RFA veteran and a former Legacy FC Heavyweight Champion, has all of his wins coming by stoppage and since entering the UFC he’s gone 2-0, knocking out both Jack May and Guto Inocente in the first round at UFC on Fox 11 and TUF 19 finale.
