Dwight Grant

Dwight Grant carries an interesting ring name as “The Body Snatcher” and he is a fighter that hails from New York City in the USA. He gets his MMA training at the American Kickboxing Academy.  Grant stands at six-foot-one and this 36-year-old has been fighting naturally at the welterweight division. His professional fighting record is now at 10-3 and has seven knockouts and three decision victories. This fighter was on back-to-back wins but that momentum was put to a stop during his most recent match against Daniel Rodriguez in UFC on ESPN 15. That match ended in the first round with a knockout at the 2:24 mark. 

Stefan Sekulic

Stefan Sekulic is a 29-year-old fighter and he came all the way from Novi Sad, Vojvodina located in Serbia. This fighter stands at six-foot-one and has been sharpening his skills at the Family Fight Team. Sekulic has been a natural middleweight and his professional fighting record is now at 12-3. Those wins are divided into six submissions, three knockouts, and three decisions. This is going to be his second fight in the UFC. His debut match was against Ramazan Emeev in UFC Fight Night 136 way back in September 2018. That match went to a full three rounds and all the judges favored his opponent to take home the win.
