Staropoli, he will try to end his bad phase inside the octagon. After a two-game losing streak, the Argentine dropped to middleweights, where he lost by unanimous decision to Roman dolidze at UFC Vegas 28. Laureano you need to win or you could be disengaged from the organization.
Pickett, is in a similar situation. The American is on a two-game losing streak and will be looking to get his first win in the Octagon. Jamie has not won since his victory in Contender Series. The native of North Carolina stands out for his strong fists, with 8 wins for KO / TKO.
The event on October 9 will be held in a location to be defined.
