Weekly MMA News Bits

Posted on 07 December 2010 by Raphael Garcia

Here are a few news tidbits that have floated throughout the mixed martial arts world at the midway point of this week:

McKenzie steps in to face Edwards

With Melvin Guillard stepping in to face Evan Dunham for the injured Kenny Florian, that left Yves Edwards, who was Guillard’s original match up without an opponent to face. That problem was solved as The Ultimate Fighter season 12 alumni Cody McKenzie took the spot. Fresh off his Submission of the Night victory over Aaron Wilkinson at the Ultimate Finale, McKenzie will look to keep his winning ways going against the MMA veteran. This fight will take place at UFC: Fight for the Troops 2, which will be held at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas.
