A late change has been made to this weekend’s UFC on Versus 6 card as Jeff Hougland has suffered an injury so UFC newcomer Byron Bloodworth will now face Mike Easton.
UFC officials announced the change on Tuesday.
Byron Bloodworth makes his UFC debut on just a few days notice and will face a very tough challenge in local fighter Mike Easton.
Bloodworth has fought in several regional promotions including Wild Bill’s Fight Night and Sport Fight, and currently has a 6-1 record overall including a current three fight win streak.
He debuts against Mike Easton, who is regarded as one of the brightest prospects in the sport currently, and they will face off on the undercard of the UFC on Versus 6 show this weekend.
