The king of the knockouts in the WEC is headed back to action in August as Anthony Njokuani will return in Las Vegas to take on newcomer Maciej “Irokez” Jewtuszko.
The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the fight on Friday. The fight was initially reported by the Las Vegas Sun.
Making his WEC debut after spending most of his career in Europe, undefeated prospect Maciej Jewtuszko (7-0) gets his chance in the big show.
Fighting in and around his home country of Poland, Jewtuszko has never fought in the United States before, but hopes to translate his winning style to American soil in August.
A veteran of five fights in the WEC, Anthony Njokuari (12-3) returns after suffering a tough loss in his last fight out at the promotion’s initial pay-per-view offering in which he was submitted by Shane Roller.
Prior to that loss, Njokuani was on a three fight win streak, with all three victories coming by way of knockout or TKO, while also taking over several “Knockout of the Night” honors.
The fight between Njokuani and Jewtuszko will occupy part of the untelevised undercard for the WEC 50 show which will be headlined by bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz defending his title for the first time against Joseph Benavidez.
