UFC president Dana White had high remarks for Jordan Mein, who will make his second Octagon appearance later this month at UFC on FOX 7.
Mein will replace Dan Hardy and face Matt Brown on the main card, which will air on FOX.
“I was very impressed with his performance,” said White, during a recent conference call. “We are using him because we were very blown away by his last fight. It is going to be a great fight (with Brown).”
White was also asked about the August UFC on FOX Sports 1 debut, which takes place from Boston. He didn’t have any fight announcements to make, but promised a stacked lineup.
“We still have time,” he said. “We are going to be doing a huge fight in Boston. That same day, the Red Sox and the Yankees are playing and we are going to be doing some really cool stuff. It will be a huge event, a great card; but nothing has come together yet.”
