A 170 pound showdown between Ricky “Horror” Story and Nick Osipczak appears to be the latest addition to the increasingly stacked UFC 112 card set for Abu Dhabi.
The expected match-up between the two was first reported by Dann Stupp over at MMAJunkie.com and FiveOuncesofPain.com has since learned from sources close to the proposed match-up that the bout is indeed on the table.
UFC 112 is set for April 10 from the Ferrari World theme park on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.
“The Ultimate Fighter” blogger for FiveOuncesofPain.com during the ninth installation of the series, Osipczak is a former professional gambler that used his knack for earning money to focus his time on training in mixed martial arts. The results have been impressive as the former kung fu practitioner has put together an unblemished record of 5-0 as a professional, with his most recent win coming in the form of a third round TKO over Matt Riddle during UFC 105.
Story got off to a rough start in his UFC debut where the twenty-five year old Washington native suffered a unanimous decision defeat at the hands of John Hathaway before rebounding in a major way with a second round arm triangle submission over Brian Foster that earned him both “Fight of the Night” and “Submission of the Night” bonuses at UFC 103. The 9-3 Story improved his UFC record to a career 2-1 with his most recent unanimous decision victory over Jessie Lennox at UFC Fight Night 20.
