TUF Nations Finale: Mark Bocek Versus Evan Dunham Latest Addition
By FCF Staff
The April 16th, TUF Nations Finale has received a notable lightweight addition, as Mark Bocek will fight fellow vet Evan Dunham at the Quebec City bound event. The card, which will be hosted by the Colisee Pepsi, will feature the finals from the ongoing “TUF Nations: Canada vs. Australia” series and Patrick Cote versus Kyle Noke.
Bocek (11-5) will be fighting for the first time since November, 2012, when he lost by unanimous decision to Rafael dos Anjos. The 32 year-old fighter and renowned jiu-jitsu practitioner has battled injuries since. Prior to the defeat Bocek had recorded back-to-back decision wins over John Alessio and Nik Lentz.
Dunham (14-5) is looking to rebound from consecutive losses to dos Anjos and most recently Donald Cerrone. The well rounded, 32 year-old vet earned a split decision win over Gleison Tibau prior to the losses.
Other bouts that have been confirmed for the April 16th card include Sam Stout vs. KJ Noons and Tim Gorman vs. Mitch Gagnon.
