Former WSOF champion Rick Glenn has signed with the UFC and will be making his debut on eight days notice against Evan Dunham.
Dunham was originally expected to face Abel Trujillo on the main card of UFC Fight Night 94 but an injury forced Trujillo to withdraw from the bout. The promotional newcomer will be moving up a weight class to fight Dunham.
Glenn (18-3) is currently on a three-fight win streak and is coming off of a split-decision victory over Ramiro Hernandez at VFC 51 in June. Prior to that, he scored back-to-back knockout victories over Adam Ward and Chris Manuel. His only defeat in his last 17 fights is to Team Alpha Male’s Lance Palmer.
Dunham (17-6) is also on a three-fight win streak and has managed to turn things around after going 1-4 between 2012 and 2014. His recent wins are unanimous decisions over Rodrigo Damm, Ross Pearson, and Joe Lauzon. He was meant to fight at UFC 189 but injuries forced him off the card.
UFC Fight Night 94 is set to take place on September 17 in Hidalgo, Texas and will be headlined by a lightweight clash between #7 ranked Dustin Poirier and #10 ranked Michael Johnson. The co-main event features a middleweight bout between Uriah Hall and Derek Brunson.
