Bryan Battle vs. Tresean Gore Targeted for UFC Event on Feb. 5
The original pairing for the middleweight finals of “The Ultimate Fighter 29” is slated to go down early next year, as Bryan Battle will lock horns with Tresean Gore on Feb. 5.
MMAjunkie.com was first to report the booking. Gore was forced to withdraw from their bout at UFC on ESPN 30 on Aug. 28 after suffering a knee injury. The UFC Fight Night event does not yet have an official location or headliner.
With Gore out, Battle captured the “TUF 29” crown with a second-round submission of Gilbert Urbina at the event. The man known as “Pooh Bear” has won five straight outings as he heads into his sophomore Octagon appearance.
Gore was 3-0 as a professional before his stint on “TUF 29,” where he bested Ryder Newman and Urbina to reach the middleweight finals before being derailed by the aforementioned injury. Gore is anchored at American Top Team Atlanta.
