TUF 10s Wessel to Take on Christison at CFC 4
Mike Wessel will take on Dan Christison at CFC 4 on February 26, according to sources close to the fighters. This should be another entertaining Heavyweight matchup for the Canadian Fighting Championship, who would not confirm the fight. At CFC 3, Dan Christison knocked out local favorite Rodrigo Munduruca in the main event of a very entertaining fight.
Fans will remember Mike Wessel from his recent appearance on The Ultimate Fighter 10. Wessel was eliminated from the competition when he was caught in a surprising Arm Bar from Marcus Jones. Wessel, who has a pro record of 6-1, has had a tough time with the UFC. Previous to TUF 10, Mike took a fight with Antoni Hardonk on only a week’s notice and he lost in the second round after his lack of conditioning caught up to him. Now he will try to get back on track by fighting another veteran of The Ultimate Fighter – Dan Christison.
Christison, who fought on TUF 2, moved on to the UFC where he defeated Brad Imes and then lost a close decision to Frank Mir. Christison, who has a 17-7 record, is 9-1 in his last ten fights and will be a very challenging opponent for Mike Wessel.
