If you haven’t yet heard the name Vincent Fricilone, prepare to hear a lot more about this Lightweight stud over the next few years.
The Vale Tudo product is undefeated in MMA, earning four straight wins to kick off his professional career alongside three sensational finishes.
With Dana White recently attending an Alaska Fighting Championship event, you know UFC brass has a close eye on the up and coming talent in the promotion.
Fricilone is still very green in the sport, but his talent and athleticism inside the cage is evident. If he is able to secure the interim Lightweight title at AFC 123, he could very well earn a UFC roster spot.
Standing in his way will be late replacement Chris Bennett, who took the interim title fight on less than a week’s notice.
The “Samurai” hasn’t had the best career thus far in MMA, going 6-4 in his first 10 bouts, but he simply could not pass up this opportunity.
Bennett’s biggest failure is his willingness to take damage in order to deliver a massive haymaker, causing him to lose two fights via knockout.
While Bennett’s fight IQ leaves a lot to be desired, there is no question he makes for an entertaining fighter.
For however long this fight lasts, it should be thrilling.
