After the pilot for Dana White and Matt Serra’s web series “Looking for a Fight” brought Sage Northcutt to the UFC, the next such competitor making his entrance comes later this month at UFC on Fox 18.
It was revealed over the weekend that 6-0 newcomer Randy Brown will be heading to the Octagon, taking on Matt Dwyer in his debut in New Jersey on Jan. 30.
The new series, which will air on YouTube, sees White and Serra – along with longtime friend “Nick The Tooth” – traveling across the country, going to local MMA events, and doing a number of other reality-TV-friendly activities in search of new and as of yet undiscovered talent.
They were in attendance for Brown’s last fight, a first round KO over Robert Plotkin at Ring of Combat 53. Brown’s competed exclusively in that promotion during his young MMA career thus far, and the 25-year-old Jamaican has stopped each of his six opponents to date.
He’ll face a tough draw in Dwyer, who is looking to bounce back from a “Fight of the Night” earning decision loss to Alan Jouban last July. Dwyer had scored a sick superman punch KO over William Macario in his previous outing to bounce back from a KO loss against Albert Tumenov in his debut.
UFC on Fox 18 will air live on network television from the Prudential Center in Newark, headlined by the five round light heavyweight bout between Anthony “Rumble” Johnson and Ryan Bader.
