Bryan Battle is just entering his prime at the age of 26 years old and this fighter hails from Charlotte, North Carolina in the United States. He gets to train and represent the Hayastan MMA Charlotte. Battle carries the ring name of “Pooh Bear” and he has been competing comfortably at the middleweight division. He only has six professional bouts under his name but only lost once via submission. This will be the first time that Battle will be entering the UFC cage.

His fighting skills are being honed at the BMF Ranch fight team who also handles his career. Urbina is a six-foot-three fighter and has competed in the middleweight division since his professional debut. He has won six of seven bouts and those wins are divided into three decisions, two submissions and one knockout. Like his opponent, Urbina showed a lot of promise at the Combate Americas and that earned his ticket to the UFC. He took on Angelo Trevino way back in November 2019 and won that match via unanimous decision.
