Mixed martial arts veteran Mike Pyle will make his long-awaited UFC debut Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena as he takes on Brock Larson in a UFC 98 prelim bout. Pyle replaces Chris Wilson, who was a last-minute scratch from the event.

Pyle (17-5-1) has nearly ten years in the fight game under his belt, and he’s faced a Who’s Who of the sport, such as Quinton Jackson, Jon Fitch, Shonie Carter, Jake Shields, Matt Horwich, and Rory Markham. Known as a submission artist who has ended 15 of his 17 wins by tap out, the Tennessee native will be looking to extend his four fight winning streak on Saturday night.
