Numerous sites are reporting that the UFC has signed a slugfest for UFC 98 in May. It appears that James “Sandman” Irvin will be taking on Drew McFedries at UFC 98 in what will be Irvin’s first fight since being Anderson Silva’s first Light Heavyweight target.
Silva, took out the larger Irvin in only :61 seconds this past July as apart of the UFC’s competitive event in an attempt to hinder Affliction’s “Banned” Pay-Per-View.
McFedries is coming off of a couple of submission losses of his own and will most likely need a victory over Irvin to remain relevant in the UFC’s growing Middleweight division.
One thing is for sure though, you can expect one of these fighters to get knocked out.
