It appears thta the most recent big time UFC signee has his first UFC fight in sights and an opponent is prepared according to several sources including MMAonTap. It looks like new UFC middleweight fighter Denis Kang will square off agaisnt UFC veteran Alan Belcher at UFC 93 in Dublin, Ireland making his highly anticipated UFC debut. This should be a great fight and a huge opportunity for both guys. Kang would be the early favorite, but Alan Belcher is known for his great striking ability and his solid Muay Thai skills. The bout agreements reportedly have been handed out. Kang will probably stay in Canada and train with Georges St. Pierre for their respective fights. The winner of this fight will be in the “contender” mix as quality opponents for the champ are slim. Both of these guys could pose a interesting match up for Anderson Silva eventually.
This is shaping up to be a great card, look for the card to start coming together more this week and next week. This card has two solid fights to headlines in a light heavyweight clash between Rich “Ace” Franklin and Dan Henderson. Also, A awesome re-match between Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and UFC Hall of Famer Mark “The Hammer” Coleman.
