Breaking news from the Ludwig camp! Denver fighter Duane BANG! Ludwig (12 – 4) has signed to fight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (www.ufc.tv). Ludwig will take on Canadian fighter Jonathon “The Road Warrior” Goulet (14 – 5). The fight will take place at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Monday January 16th. The welterweight match will be part of the Ultimate Fight Night 3 which will broadcast live on SPIKE TV.
Ludwig was already training for his return to MMA and was scheduled to fight in Hawaii on the 14th of January. Ludwig is excited about his return to the UFC and hopes to have an impressive performance.
The offer was a nice Christmas present to the Ludwig camp. “We were already working towards a return to the UFC later this year. We had two MMA bouts lined up in January and February and were working towards a possible return in the spring. This offer came short notice, and speeds thing up a bit, but it is something Duane and I both felt we couldn’t pass up,” said Ludwig’s manager Sven Bean. “Goulet has been on a roll, beating some top guys, and making waves It is just that kind of guy that will give Duane the spark to make a great fight!”
