UFC FN 54: Daron Cruickshank to Face Anthony Njokuani
By FCF Staff
UFC Fight Night 54 has landed a lightweight bout between two talented strikers, as the promotion has announced Daron Cruickshank will take on Anthony Njokuani.
Cruickshank (15-5) is looking to get back on track after he was decisioned by Jorge Masvidal at UFC on FOX 12 in July. Heading into the bout the TUF vet had recorded consecutive, stoppage victories over Mike Rio and Erik Koch.
Njokuani (16-8) is also coming off a loss, as the lightweight was decisioned by Vinc Pichel at UFC 173 in May. Prior to the defeat, Njokuani knocked out Roger Bowling in the second round at UFC on FOX 7 last April.
UFC FN 54 will be hosted by Halifax, Nova Scotia on October 4th, and will feature Rory MacDonald taking on fellow, welterweight contender Tarec Saffiedine.
With the addition of Cruickshank-Njokuani, 12 bouts have been booked for the upcoming event.
