Jenkins (8-2) will be looking to rebound from his technical submission defeat to Georgi Karakhanyan in January, which snapped the renowned wrestler’s four fight winning streak.
Wilk (18-10) is also coming off a loss, as he was stopped by Ricky Musgrave in October. Prior to that “The Nose” submitted Joe Pearson at a VFC event last July.
