UFC Fight Night Zagreb Complete with Addition of 3 New Bouts

By Tristen Critchfield Mar 4, 2016

The lineup for UFC Fight Night in Zagreb, Croatia, is now set, as promotion officials recently announced the addition of three fights to complete the 13-bout card.

The recent additions include a bantamweight tussle between Ian Entwistle and Alejandro Perez; a featherweight clash between Lucas Martins and Robert Whiteford and a strawweight tilt pitting Maryna Moroz against Cristina Stanciu.

UFC Fight Night Zagreb takes place at Zagreb Arena and is headlined by a heavyweight showdown between Ben Rothwell and Junior dos Santos.

Entwistle earned his first Octagon triumph at UFC on Fox 13, submitting Anthony Birchak with a heel hook 64 seconds into round one. The bantamweight winner of “The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America,” Perez is 2-1 in the promotion, including a TKO victory against Scott Jorgensen on Nov. 21.

After winning three of his first four UFC appearances, Martins enters the event on the heels of consecutive losses to Mirsad Bektic and Darren Elkins in his last two outings. Whiteford, meanwhile, is 2-2 in the promotion, including a decision setback to Elkins in his most recent bout.

Moroz made waves by submitting Joanne Calderwood in her Octagon debut, but she came up short in her sophomore outing, dropping a decision to former title challenger Valerie Letourneau last August. A native of Romania, Stanciu enters her promotional debut with a 5-0 mark, with all but one of those triumphs coming inside the distance.
