Three Bouts Added to Halifax Card

The UFC’s return to Halifax on Feb. 19 received a triple dose of exciting bouts on Friday, with standouts in the middleweight and lightweight divisions taking to the Octagon at Scotiabank Centre for a special Sunday event to be aired on FS1.

In middleweight action, former TUF Nations winner Elias Theodorou returns to the Octagon for the first time since his June win over Sam Alvey as he competes in his home country against surging Brazilian Cezar Ferreira, a TUF Brazil winner who is on a three-fight winning streak.

Also in the middleweight division, Brazilian knockout artist Thiago “Marreta” Santos battles Welsh prospect Jack “The Hammer” Marshman, who is fresh off a knockout of Magnus Cedenblad in November that earned him Performance of the Night honors.

And in the lightweight division, Ontario’s Alessandro Ricci makes his second UFC start against Alvaro Herrera.

Tickets for Fight Night Halifax go on sale to the general public at 10am AST on Dec. 15. UFC Fight Club members will have access to tickets on Dec. 13, and those who subscribe to the UFC newsletter may buy tickets on Dec. 14. To buy tickets, click here.
