Nick Denis’ Debut UFC Fight Announced
Canadian Bantamweight Nick Denis (10-2) will be joining fellow Canadian Ryan Jimmo on the UFC on FX 1 card. Denis will face Joseph Sandoval (6-1) in his UFC debut. The event is scheduled for Nashville, Tennessee on January 20th.
Denis slammed his way into the UFC with an incredible finish of Nick Mamalis at the Score Fighting Series. After handily losing the first round to Mamalis, Denis fought back in the second and completed the comeback with a suplex/chokeslam finish of his opponent that is sure to draw nods as the Knockout of the Year.
Denis’ debut opponent, Joseph Sandoval, has already made his UFC debut. Last October, Sandoval lost in under a minute and a half to Walel Watson at UFC Live 6.
The card is headlined by Melvin Guillard vs. Jim Miller and will also feature Ryan Jimmo (16-1) taking on Karlos Vemola (8-2).
