Just a week after Jared Cannonier called out kickboxing great, Gokhan Saki, the UFC announced Saki’s first opponent. The Dutch kickboxer will make his UFC debut when he takes on Henrique da Silva at a UFC Fight Night event on September 23, in Saitama, Japan.
Saki is a decorated kickboxer, winning the Glory light heavyweight and tournament championship. He has amassed a 83-16 record with 59 wins by knockout.
Saki had one MMA fight 13 years ago when he lost to James Zikic by TKO.
