Anders-Jotko Added To UFC Portland
Two middleweights will get a chance to shine in Portland as Eryk Anders will face off against Krzysztof Jotko on April 11. The event, also known as UFC Fight Night 172 , will air exclusively on ESPN+.
Anders (13-4) is coming off of a split decision win over Gerald Meerschaert back in October. He is currently on a two-fight win streak following a three-fight skid. He is 3-3 in his last six fights. Since joining the UFC in 2017, the 32-year-old is 5-4.
In 12 fights with the UFC, Jotko (21-4) is 8-4. He won his last two bouts against Alen Amedovski and Marc-Andre Barriault, ending a three fight skid. With six wins via knockout, the 30-year-old is looking to continue his rise in major competition. The three fights in which he lost were against David Branch, Uriah Hall and Brad Tavares.
UFC Portland will be taking place inside the Moda Center. The main event will be Alistair Overeem taking on the returning Walt Harris.
