Two-time Dana White’s Contender Series alum William
Knight will get to make a quick turnaround at UFC
253, as he will square off against Aleksa
Camur on the preliminary portion of the card.
The promotion announced the matchup during the UFC Fight Night 176
broadcast on Saturday night. UFC 253 takes place on Sept. 26 on Yas
Island in Abu Dhabi and is headlined by a middleweight title bout
Adesanya and Paulo
Knight earned a UFC deal with a first-round TKO of Cody
Brundage on the Contender Series on Sept. 1. The 32-year-old is
8-1 as a professional, with all of his victories coming via
knockout or technical knockout.
Also a former Contender Series winner, Camur is coming off a
three-round verdict over Justin
Ledet in his promotional debut at UFC 246 on Jan. 18. The
24-year-old Strong Style Fight Team representative is 6-0 during
his professional tenure and has finished all but one of his wins
inside the distance.
