Wilson Reis to Face UFC Newcomer Sean Santella
By FCF Staff
Recently Wilson Reis reported that he’s still going to fight at UFC 201, even thought Demetrious Johnson has withdrawn, and the promotion’s announced that he’ll face newcomer Sean Santella.
Reis was booked to fight the flyweight champ Johnson at the July 30th card, but the latter had to pull out due to injury. Recently the UFC confirmed that Reis will now face Santella (15-5-1), who is riding a three fight, undefeated streak.
Reis (20-6), meanwhile, is coming off a decision win over Dustin Ortiz in January, and is 3-2 in his last 5 bouts.
UFC 201 will be hosted by Atlanta, Georgia. In the main event, welterweight champ Robbie Lawler will take on Tyron Woodley.
