A heavyweight fight between Anthony Hamilton and Marcel Fortuna has been scheduled for UFC Houston.
The UFC announced the fight yesterday.
Hamilton (15-6 MMA, 3-3 UFC) has been consistently inconsistent in the UFC. He has carried a trend of winning one, and then losing one. The 36-year-old started his UFC career with a loss, followed it with a win, then loss, win, loss, win loss. Hamilton is 3-3 in the UFC,and is coming off a loss. Coming off a loss is never ideal, but if his win one lose one streak continues, he’s due a win in Houston.
Fortuna (8-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) went 3-0 before losing his fourth professional bout. Since that fight, though, the American has put together five straight wins. In those five wins, the 31-year-old has picked up three finishes, all by submission. He was a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter Season 23, but was eliminated by Cory Hendricks. This will be his first bout since the competition.
UFC Fight Night 104 takes place live from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas on February 4, 2017. The card is set to be headlined by a featherweight contest between Dennis Bermudez and Chan Sung Jung.
