Wade (10-1), meanwhile, is riding a five fight winning streak and is coming off a decision win over Christos Giagos last month.The experienced wrestler hasn’t lost since 2013, when he was decisioned by Ozzy Dugulubgov, while fighting for WSOF.
UFC FN 74 will be headlined by a featherweight fight between contenders Charles Oliveira and Max Holloway.
