Perennial UFC featherweight contender Dennis Bermudez will make his return to the Octagon at UFC Fight Night 133 on July 14 from inside CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho, when he takes on gritty veteran and former World Series of Fighting (WSOF) champion Rick Glen, per a recent report by Newsday.com.
Bermudez, 31, is currently experiencing the second-worst skid of his entire career, having lost his last three UFC appearances. “The Menace” is still a talented threat at 145 pounds, but his knockout loss to Chan Sung Jung a little over a year ago really sent the New Yorker for a loop. Look for Bermudez to get back to basics, rely on his wrestling, and do everything in his power to avoid his first ever four-fight losing streak when he travels to Boise this summer.
Glenn, 29, has been a very entertaining fighter since his UFC debut in 2016, but the Iowa native has only produced a mediocre 2-2 record, losing to the likes of Myles Jury and Evan Dunham. That said, “Gladiator” holds a key victory over talented featherweight prospect Gavin Tucker, so a decisive win over a proven contender like Bermudez could go a long way in possibly jolting Glenn into the top 15.
UFC Fight Night 133 will be headlined by a heavyweight clash between former UFC champion Junior dos Santos and former WSOF heavyweight king Blagoy Ivanov, who will be making his Octagon debut.
