Ibrahim Kallie will step inside the Maverick MMA cage next month for the biggest test of his amateur mixed martial arts career thus far.  With a record of 2-1 and both of his wins coming under the Maverick banner, Kallie will challenge organizational welterweight champion Michael DeLouisa for his title on September 22.

“I’m thankful for the opportunity to fight and show my skills,” Kallie said.

The 21-year old Kallie defeated Justin Kosko at Maverick 4 and Joseph Cole at Maverick 6.
