Matt Mitrione vs. Christian Morecraft in the works for UFC on Versus 4Posted on April 11, 2011, 10:50 PM by Joey Santosus
A Heavyweight clash between Matt Mitrione and Christian Morecraft has reportedly been added to the UFC on Versus 4 line-up.
MMAJunkie.com first reported the development, while UFC officials have confirmed that verbal agreements are in place for the bout.
Mitrione (4-0) made his professional MMA debut under the UFC banner following a stint on the tenth season of The Ultimate Fighter. After knocking out castemate Marcus "Big Baby" Jones at the show's finale to secure his spot on the roster, the Duke Roufus product has strung together a four fight winning streak with additional victories over Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson, Joey Beltran, and most recently Tim Hague.
Morecraft, meanwhile, recently got back in the win column with an impressive submission victory over Sean McCorkle at UFC Fight Night 24. Prior to the win, he suffered his first career defeat against Stefan Struve in his octagon debut. The loss snapped a six-fight winning streak, all of which came via first round stoppage while competing for local Massachusetts promotions.
UFC on Versus 4 is set to take place June 26th from the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and will broadcast live and free on the Versus network.
