Ulka Sasaki

UFC announced first set of fight cards of the upcoming UFC Fight Night 111 scheduled to be held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

The headliner is going to be a heavyweight showdown between the former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovsky and Marcin Tybura from Poland.

In addition, three Asians are confirmed for this show.

The former PRIDE world lightweight champion Takanori Gomi is taking on Jon Tuck from USA, and another Japanese star Ulka Sasaki is going to face the American Justin Scoggins in a flyweight bout.

Also, Kwan Ho Kwak from South Korea is fighting Russell Doane from Hawaii.

In the Octagon, Sasaki is now 2-3 (but 1-1 as the flyweight), Scoggins is 4-3, Tuck is 3-4, and Gomi is 4-7.

All four must’ve love to score W here so we can expect a very competitive fights from these four fighters.

For Doane, this is the fight he must win because the American is currently on a four-fight losing streak and also, this is the last fight on his current contract.

Kwak made UFC debut with an unanimous decision win over Bret Johns in November of last year.

Another fight announced from UFC was a heavyweight bout between Cyril Asker from France and Walt Harris from USA.
