Chris Beal will meet Neil Seery at UFC on Fox 14 in Stockholm on Jan. 24. While no weight class was announced, the fight will likely mark Beal’s flyweight debut.
Ultimate Fighting Championship officials revealed the pairing on Saturday. UFC on Fox 14 takes place at the Tele2Arena in Stockholm and is highlighted by a light heavyweight No. 1 contender showdown between Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Johnson. The evening’s main card also includes a key 205-pound tilt between Ryan Bader and Phil Davis as well as a middleweight matchup pitting Gegard Mousasi against Dan Henderson.
Beal remains undefeated as a professional, including wins in his first two bouts under the UFC banner: A highlight-reel finish of Patrick Williams at UFC 172, and a tightly contested decision win against Tateki Matsuda at UFC Fight Night “Jacare vs. Mousasi 2.” Beal was also a member of the cast of “The Ultimate Fighter: 18,” where he was coached by Ronda Rousey.
Seery bounced back from a loss in his promotional debut against Brad Pickett at UFC Fight Night “Gustafsson vs. Manuwa” by defeating Phil Harris via decision at UFC Fight Night “McGregor vs. Brandao.” The 35-year-old has finished his opponents in 11 of his 14 wins.
