UFC FN 59: Paul Felder vs. Johnny Case Latest Addition
By FCF Staff
The line-up for UFC Fight Night 59 continues to fill up, as the promotion has announced that Johnny Case will battle lightweight Paul Felder at the upcoming event.
The January 18th card will be hosted by Boston’s TD Garden Arena, and will feature Conor McGregor taking on fellow, featherweight contender Dennis Siver in the main event.
Case (19-4) will be looking to build on his successful UFC debut in September, when he choked out veteran Kazuki Tokudome with a first round, guillotine choke. The Alliance MMA fighter has won nine straight bouts.
Felder (9-0) is also coming off his Octagon debut, as he worked his way to a split decision over Jason Saggo at UFC FN 54 in September. The Renzo Gracie Team member has won six of his fights via TKO or knockout.
To date, nine fights have been confirmed for UFC FN 59, which will also feature former lightweight champ Benson Henderson taking on Eddie Alvarez.
