Bagautinov vs. Herrera set for Ottawa

Looking to snap a two-fight losing streak, flyweight contender Ali Bagautinov hopes to hold off the charge of rising star Geane Herrera in UFC Fight Night action at TD Place Arena in Ottawa on June 18.

In the UFC Fight Night main event, top welterweight contenders collide when Rory MacDonald faces Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson. FOX Sports 1 will televise the card.

Fresh from an impressive TKO victory over Joby Sanchez in December, Florida’s Herrera has proved that he’s ready for a step up against the No. 10-ranked Bagautinov, a former world title challenger who owns Octagon wins over John Lineker and Timothy Elliott.
