UFC on FOX 24 brings us a handful of highly anticipated bouts from Sprint Centre, Kansas. Australia’s Robert Whittaker will take on Brazil’s Ronaldo Souza in an attempt to get closer to the middleweight belt, while flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson will take on contender Wilson Reis.
‘This kid is going to be a UFC champ’
UFC young gun Tom Duquesnoy stunned the crowd on debut in Kansas, taking home a brilliant victory over Patrick Williams in the bantamweight class. The 23-year-old “fire kid” floored Williams with a barrage of blows to the head, sending him to the deck early in the second round to cause a major upset over his more experienced opponent.
The next fight to grace the Octagon is Alexander Volkov vs. Roy Nelson in the heavyweight division to close out the preliminary card.
