It’s all change for the Jess “The Joker” Liaudin at UFC 75 as he faces Anthony Torres from The Ultimate Fighter fame instead of his originally scheduled opponent Anthony Johnson.
Torres will be remembered from The Ultimate Fighter series having lost to Luke Cummo, but has amassed a 5-0 record in professional competition including a recent win over Pat Healey at UFC Fight Night 6. (The Ultimate Fighter fights are deemed as “exhibition matches” and do not count towards a fighters pro record.)
Liaudin has really been pushing himself in training and has moved over to the United States in preparation for this bout working extensively on his wrestling to compliment his background in Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai.
The UFC 75 fight is scheduled to take place Sept. 8 at the O2 Arena in London. The main event of the evening features the first ever title unification bout between UFC Champion Quinton Jackson and Pride Champion Dan Henderson in the light heavyweight division.
