Steve Cantwell vs. Razak Al-Hussan Likely For UFC Fight Night 16

0

From MMAJunkie.com:

After defeating Brian Stann for the WEC belt earlier this year, and with Zuffa's decision to fold the WEC's 205- and 185-pound weight classes into the UFC, Cantwell was slated to rematch Stann at “UFC Fight Night 16: UFC Fights for the Troops” in December.

Although Stann was recently forced off the card with a broken foot, UFC newcomer Razak Al-Hussan (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) could get the fight with Cantwell (6-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) instead.

A source close to Al-Hussan, an undefeated Des Moines-based fighter who made his professional debut in 2007, today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the fighter has accepted the bout and his camp is awaiting word from Cantwell's.

If accepted, the bout would be the latest addition to a quickly filling UFC Fight Night 16 card. The event, which serves as a fundraiser for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, takes place at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, N.C., in conjunction with the Fort Bragg military installation.
