UFC FN 45: Rick Story Versus John Howard Targeted
By FCF Staff
It looks like the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s July 16th card in Atlantic City has a new addition, as the promotion has announced that Rick Story and John Howard have verbally agreed to fight at the event.
UFC Fight Night 45 will be hosted by the Revel Casino Hotel, and will feature Donald Cerrone taking on fellow lightweight contender Jim Miller in the headliner.
Story (16-8) will be looking to rebound from the split decision loss he incurred versus Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 171 in March, after he decisioned Brian Ebersole at UFC 167 in November.
Howard (22-9) is also coming off a loss, as the welterweight lost via unanimous decision to Ryan LaFlare at UFC FN 39 last month. Prior to that, “Doomsday” had won four straight, which included Octagon wins over Uriah Hall and Siyar Bahadurzada.
The other bouts that have been confirmed for UFC FN 45 to date include John Lineker vs. Alptekin Ozkili and Aljamain Sterling vs. Hugo Viana.
