The UFC Fight Night 102 card is rounding into shape as the Ultimate Fighting Championship announced on Thursday another addition to the year’s second New York-based event. Andrew Sanchez, who dominated everybody en route to becoming the light heavyweight “champion” of “The Ultimate Fighter 23,” will stay home to fight Trevor Smith on the card.
After spending some time in Resurrection Fighting Alliance, “El Dirte” cleaned house in the TUF house and won the show by dominating Khalil Rountree via unanimous decision. He’ll next lock horns with Smith, who has struggled to maintain a winning streak in the UFC after fighting in Strikeforce.
UFC Fight Night 102 goes down on Dec. 9 at Times Union Center in Albany, N.Y., and will be headlined by a heavyweight showdown between Derrick Lewis and Shamil Abdurakhimov while Anthony Hamilton will take on Francis Ngannou and Raphael Assuncao will oppose Aljamain Sterling on the main card.
UFC Fight Night 102 will be streamed in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass.
