Marcel Fortuna set to meet Jake Collier at UFC Norfolk, Nov 11th
Light Heavyweight action has been added to UFC’s November 11th card as Marcel Fortuna takes on Jake Collier in Norfolk, according to Combate.com with sources close to the organization.
Fortuna (9-2) is coming into this fight off a loss to the hands of Jordan Johnson. The loss to Johnson snapped a 6 fight win streak which was putting him in the right direction towards the top contenders. Prior to that loss, Fortuna debuted in the UFC (and the heavyweight division) with a 1st round KO win over Anthony Hamilton in February. In this fight he took home an additional $50,000 with Performance of the night.
Collier (10-4) hasn’t had it great coming into the UFC, winning only 2 of his 5 fights in the promotion. Collier comes into this one as the younger but has more experience within the UFC. In Collier’s last bout he was unfortunate, losing to Devin Clark on the scorecards.
