Tamdan 'Barncat' McCrory will fight at UFC 78 on November 17 in Newark, N.J., according to an article in The Ithaca Journal.
No opponent has been named at this time.
Here's the snip:
"McCrory's next fight is in November in New Jersey, and he's looking to make up to $12,000 with a win, with a possible $30,000 in bonuses and endorsements off that fight alone."
That's some solid beer money for the 6'4" 170-pound New York-based college student-turned mixed martial artist.
Up until this point, the tentative UFC 78 fight card has been loaded with 155-pound talent such as UFC Lightweight Champion Sean Sherk (maybe), BJ Penn, Frank Edgar, Kenny Florian and Joe Lauzon.
McCrory -- a self-proclaimed nerd -- is an undefeated welterweight who has one win inside the Octagon to his credit -- a submission of veteran Pete Spratt at UFC Fight Night 10.
Stay tuned for more details about his likely opponent. In the meantime, check out the latest UFC 78 fight card right here.
