Former UFC welterweight Jacob Volkmann will be slashing 15 aditional pounds from his frame to make his debut in the UFC’s lightweight division against Ronys Torres during UFC Fight Night 21.
Volkmann recently announced the match-up on his Twitter account:
I will be fighting UFN 21 in North Carolina against Ronys Torres at 155 pounds on March 31st. Hopefully it will make Spike.
The March Fight Night card will take place from the Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte, North Carolina, with Kenny Florian meeting up with Takanori Gomi in the headlining match-up.
Volkmann had entered the UFC with an undefeated record of 9-0 but has since suffered consecutive defeats at the hands of Paulo Thiago and Martin Kampmann, while Torres recently made his UFC debut at UFC 109 where he suffered a hard-fought decision at the hands of a much improved Melvin Guillard.
