UFC Officials confirmed a report from the Chronicle Herald today that Gavin “The Newfoundland Terror” Tucker vs. Rick “The Gladiator” Glenn will do battle. The Featherweight bout marks the first official fight for the UFC’s debut at Rogers Place in Edmonton this September.

Gavin Tucker enters this bout on the strength of a dominant decision victory over 12 time UFC veteran Sam Sicilia in his Octagon debut in February at UFC Fight Night 105 in Halifax. Tucker started out his career with nine straight wins with only his pro debut going to the judges scorecards.  The Titans MMA product holds notable wins over the likes of Lyndon Whitlock, Ryan Connor and Bo Harris.

Standing across the cage will be former WSOF Featherweight Champion Rick Glenn who recently earned his first UFC victory over Phillipe Nover after dropping his debut to Evan Dunham at UFC Fight Night 94. Glenn has piled up an impressive 18-3-1 record outside the UFC with notable wins coming over Georgi Karakhanyan, Alexandre Pimentel, Tristan Johnson and common opponent Lyndon Whitlock. (It should be noted Tucker finished Whitlock 7 seconds faster).

    If you’re so rich, why does it bother you how much is paid to fighters? Does it affect you? Or are you really not rich, and just a bitch? Only a bitch who isn’t rich would go around online anonymously and claim to be rich.
