Next Friday, 6 December, the Monarchy MMA representative will now face undefeated American athlete Dante Schiro in a welterweight match-up on the main card.
The man from Wisconsin has enjoyed a near-perfect start to his career by achieving five of his six victories by stoppage – three via TKO and a pair of submissions.
That success came after a six-bout winning streak in his amateur career that came with a 100-percent finishing rate.
However, he will face a huge challenge to build on that record against one of The Home Of Martial Arts’ most seasoned welterweight campaigners.
No man has won more matches in the division than “Alligator,” and the majority of his success has come with the backing of his compatriots in KL.
