UFC FN 35: High-Amagov, Smith-Houston Added to Card
By FCF Staff
The UFC continues to build the line-up for the promotion’s upcoming January 15th event in Duluth, Georgia, as two more fights have been added to the Fight Night card.
At welterweight, Jason High (18-4) will battle fellow Strikeforce veteran Adlan Amagov (13-2-1).
High is coming off consecutive wins over James Head and Anthony Lapsley, after being submitted by Erick Silva in June.
Amagov is on a three fight win streak, which includes Octagon victories over T.J. Waldburger and Chris Spang. The only man to defeat Amagov in his last ten bouts is welterweight contender Robbie Lawler.
The promotion has also announced that Brian Houston (4-1) has agreed to fight Trevor Smith (10-4) at UFC FN 35.
Smith is coming off a memorable, split decision loss to Ed Herman in July, while Houston made his Octagon debut at UFC FN 31 and was submitted by Derek Brunson.
UFC FN 35 will be hosted by Duluth’s Gwinnett Center and will feature Luke Rockhold taking on middleweight Costa Philippou in the main event.
