Heavy-hitting middleweights, Gregory Rodrigues and Chidi Njokuani, are set to meet on UFC’s September 17th Fight Night card.
Rodrigues (12-4-0) made his way to the UFC by way of the LFA, where he went undefeated and captured the middleweight championship belt. Since joining the UFC roster, he has defeated Dusko Todorovic, Jun Yong Park, and most recently, Julian Marquez.

Come September 17th, he will look to collect his 11th stoppage victory over fellow middleweight finisher, Njokuani.
“Bang Bang” Njokuani (22-7-0, 1 NC) is currently riding a four-fight win streak. After spending time in RFA, Bellator, and the LFA, he made his way to the UFC and has gone undefeated since. In his promotional debut, he defeated Marc-Andre Barriault via first-round knockout. His second UFC bout came against Dusko Todorovic, where it took Njokuani just one round to shut his lights out.
