After making a spectacular WSOF debut this past November Mike “The Martian” Ricci looks to get right back in the cage when he headlines WSOF 27 against redecnt signee Caros “The Future” Fodor.

Ricci made his WSOF debut during the one night Lightweight tournament at WSOF 25 with a vicious head kick KO of Joe Condon unfortunately for the Tristar product a hip injury kept him from continuing in the tourney. Currently riding a 3 fight win streak with wins over the likes of Jorge Gurgel and George Sotiropoulos “The Martian” is finally looking like the prospect he was touted to be 4 years ago.

Fodor, a member of AMC Pankration, will make his WSOF debut after a 4 fight stint in One FC where he went 3-1. “The Future” is no stranger to the big show lights as he is a Strikeforce veteran and even fought Sam Stout to a decision at UFC 157 before receiving his Octagon walking papers. Now with back to back wins under his belt, Fodor will look to finally taste big show success.

WSOF 27 goes down January 23rd from The Theater at the FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee. The card also features a Light Heavyweight tilt between the undefeated Shamil Gamzatov and Teddy Holder.
