Andrew Craig vs. Edgar Garcia At UFC Fight Night 71

Andrew Craig is set to drop down from middleweight to welterweight for the UFC Fight Night 71 face off with Edgar Garcia, the UFC recently officially added the fight to the lineup.

UFC Fight Night 71 is set to go down on July 15th at Valley View Casino Center in San Diego. The majority of the card is expected to air on FOX Sports 1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

At this time it is unclear exactly where the Craig vs. Garcia fight will be added to.

Craig is likely in a must-win situation. After signing with the UFC in 2012, the former Legacy FC champion won his first two fights, which included a head-kick knockout of Rafael Natal. However, the 29-year-old Texan is just 1-3 since then. Craig now meets Garcia, who went 0-2 in his first UFC stint back in 2009 with losses to Brad Blackburn and DaMarques Johnson. He then rebounded on the regional circuit and went 7-1 with six stoppages to get a call back to the octagon.
