A welterweight bout has been added to the near complete UFC 99 fight card as undefeated welterweight prospect John Hathaway will take on UFC newcomer Rick Story. UFC 99 takes place on June 13th in Cologne, Germany; this is the UFC’s first event in Germany.
The 10-0 Hathaway debuted with the UFC at UFC 93 back in January; it was a successful debut as he scored a first-round TKO win over Tom Egan.
Story is currently riding high on a six fight winning streak with his most-recent victory coming over Brandon Melendez via submission last September. Story was signed to the UFC as a stand-by replacement for Karo Parisyan at UFC 94. The UFC were cautious as to whether Parisyan would pull out of his UFC 94 bout at the last minute.
