Warrior One MMA (W-1) wasted no time booking its most recent high-profile acquisition, Denis Kang (32-12-1), to headline "Bad Blood" on March 20, pairing him opposite 61-fight veteran, Vernon White (26-33-2).
Kang revealed the match up today via Twitter.com.
White, a bonafide MMA veteran who began his career in the Japanese organization, Pancrase, in its inaugural year (1993), has faced some of the biggest names in MMA today: Chuck Liddell, Frank Shamrock, Bas Rutten, Masakatsu Funaki, Pedro Rizzo, Kazushi Sakuraba, and the current UFC Light Heavyweight champion, Lyoto Machida, to name a few.
He last fought in May 2009 in "War Gods - War Gods 5" fight card, dropping a unanimous decision against Lew Polley.
Kang, meanwhile -- once a top-ranked middleweight with a stunning 23-fight undefeated streak from 2003 to 2006 in organizations such as Pride FC and Spirit MC -- has run into a rough patch in recent years.
During his three-fight stint in UFC, he went 1-2 with a decison win over Xavier Foupa-Pokam sandwiched between uninspiring losses to Alan Belcher in his promotional debut and to Michael Bisping at UFC 105.
W-1 Bad Blood will take place at the Pierre Charbonneau Centre in Montreal, Quebec Canada on Saturday, March 20, 2010.
