Kevin "The Monster" Randleman [pictured at right] returns to the Octagon on September 28th to take on Vladimir "The Janitor" Matyushenko in a light heavyweight bout.

Vladdy Matyushenko

The heavyweight bout between Ricco Rodriguez and Pete Williams has been cancelled due to an injury suffered by Williams in training.

From the event’s promoter:


UCC
TAKEN TO THE EXTREME!!!


Another bout added to the October 19th UCC 6: REDEMPTION fight card!!!

At UCC 6 Monte Cox’s TEAM EXTREME will be invading Canada and the RING OF FURYTM. As previously announced, undefeated MMA fighter Sean Sherk will face the undefeated UCC World middleweight champion Donald Ouimet and UCC 6 will host a superfight between UCC BAD GUY Pain Peters and LaVerne Clark.

On October 19th yet another EXTREME member will be making his UCC debut. He is the only Canadian TEAM EXTREME fighter and is known as one of the hottest young MMA prospects in the world…. He is none other than Joe Doerksen! In his young career Joe has faced some of the best competition out there and is now set to enter Canada’s toughest battle field, the UCC!!!

His opponent is no stranger to UCC fans. Stephane Potvin is ready for this great challenge and feels that he has never been more prepared for a fight. Potvin was slated to face UCC Canadian LHW champ Gary Armbrust however the champ was forced to withdraw due to an injury. Always ready for war… Potvin is coming to dish out the punishment and climb one step closer to regaining the strap that was once around his waist. This will be the first time that Joe will be able to shine in his home country and he is looking to take full advantage of this opportunity and stun UCC fans in his debut.

More to come very soon regarding UCC 6: REDEMPTION!!!!
