Paul “Bearjew” Craig has his next opponent confirmed and he’s travelling to Australia to compete.
Craig will take on Australian Jim Crute in Adelaide at UFC Fight Night 142 on December 2nd, the Daily Record’s Tom Heffernan revealed.
Crute is an undefeated 8-0 fighter making his debut after competing successfully on The Contender Series when he deafeated Chris Birchler by a 1st round stoppage. Crute has fought on local show Hex Fight Series where he was the light heavyweight champion.
Craig (10-2) returns to the Octagon after a last second triangle choke submission victory over the highly fancied Magomed Ankalaev in London in March. Craig’s last gasp win was enough for the UFC to offer a new deal and he now takes on another undefeated fighter.
