UFC Fight Night: Mark Bocek Receives New Opponent

UFC

Evan Dunham’s injury has opened the door for Mike de La Torre to secure a shot in the UFC, as he has been tabbed to face Mark Bocek at UFC Fight Night: Bisping vs. Kennedy.

Dunham exited the fight just over a week before it was scheduled on Monday. The exact lineup has yet to be confirmed by UFC officials.

The newcomer sports a 12-3 overall record, including three straight wins. Last year, he submitted James Terry via first round rear-naked choke.

Bocek (11-5) is coming off a decision loss in 2012 to Rafael dos Anjos. Prior to that, he had won two straight.
