With all the hoopla surrounding tomorrow’s huge UFC 168 event, some news can easily slip through the cracks. UFC Fight Night 35 added a late addition this week as Flyweight, Alptekin Ozkilic, faces UFC newcomer, Louis Smolka.
Ozkilic made his UFC debut earlier this month against Darren Uyenoyama at UFC on FOX 9. Ozkilic, a late replacement for John Moraga, defeated Uyenoyama by split decision in a closely fought battle. He is currently on a four fight winning streak, and is looking to make a name for himself inside the UFC’s Flyweight division.
Ozkilic welcomes PXC Flyweight Champion, Louis Smolka, to the UFC. Smolka, who just started his MMA career a little over three years ago, comes into the bout with a 6-0 record with 6 straight finishes. He will look to make a statement with his seventh straight finish when he makes his debut next month.
