UFC veterans Dan Spohn and Dequan Townsend set to headline OCL 22

A professional light heavyweight bout is set to headline Ohio Combat League 22, which takes place on Oct. 8 at the Hollywood Casino in Columbus, Ohio. UFC veterans Dan Spohn and Dequan Towsend bring more than 60 combined professional fights into a marquee matchup.

Spohn has been known as a viral knockout artist in his career, including a memorable nine-second flying knee over Dane Bonnigson at Bellator 51 and an incredible right hook knockout over Tyler King in his TUF 19 preliminary fight that left UFC president Dana White and coaches B.J. Penn and Frankie Edgar speechless.

A product of Ronin Training Center in Columbus, Spohn will compete for the first time since a draw against Emiliano Sordi at PFL 2021 #5 and he looks for his first win since a decision victory over Artur Alibulatov at PFL 2018 #5. Spohn has 12 wins via stoppage, including seven knockouts and five submissions. His overall record is 18-8-1.

Townsend posted a 20-8 pro record before signing with the UFC in 2019. He came up short in all four of his UFC outings, but he’s returned to the regional scene and posted a pair of wins in 2022. Now, the Michigan native and Murcielago MMA fighter looks for a big win as he tries to make it back to the big show. Townsend has a 23-12 overall record, with 17 stoppage wins, including 12 via knockout.
