The fight card for UFC Fight Night 84 in Brisbane continues to fill up.
Combat Press has learned from sources close to the situation that a lightweight contest between American Johnny Case and Australian Jake Matthews is targeted for UFC Fight Night 84 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia on Sunday, March 20 (Saturday, March 19 in North America).
The 26-year-old Case heads into the event riding a wave of momentum. “Hollywood” has won 12 straight fights dating back to 2010, including four straight inside the Octagon. Eighteen of his 22 wins have come before the final bell, but he needed the scorecards in his last outing, a unanimous decision win over Yan Cabral at UFC Fight Night 77.
Matthews will look to build on a TKO win over Akbarh Arreola at UFC 193 in November. Prior to that, the 21-year-old suffered the first loss of his career against James Vick. “The Celtic Kid” holds nine career wins, including eight via finish.
UFC Fight Night 84 will take place from the Brisbane Entertainment Centre. The event will be headlined by a heavyweight match-up between former champion Frank Mir and hard-hitting Kiwi Mark Hunt. The co-main event will feature Cuban judoka Hector Lombard against Neil Magny. The main card will air live on Fox Sports 1. More bouts for the event are expected to be revealed in the coming weeks.
