Heavyweights Walt Harris and Nikita Krylov square off at UFC on FOX 10
A pair of second time UFC heavyweights will be looking to get a first win as Walt Harris books his next fight just days after his debut as he takes on Russian Nikita Krylov at UFC on FOX: Henderson vs. Thomson.
Harris (5-2) made his first appearance inside the Octagon at last weekend's Ultimate Fighter 18 finale show where he took on wrestler Jared Rosholt. Harris looked strong in the first round, dropping Rosholt with strikes on two occasions but his conditioning faded when he didn't get the finish and it hurt him as the fight moved forward.
Rosholt was able to battle back after losing the first round to take the decision victory and hand Harris his first loss in five fights.
Now, Harris will look to start a new streak when he takes on Russian Nikita Krylov, who also hopes to erase the memories of his first trip to the Octagon.
Krylov (15-3) at just 21 years of age is one of the youngest heavyweights on the UFC roster but as he closes in on 20 professional fights experience isn't an issue. He struggled in his first UFC fight losing by TKO to Soa Palelei in a bout that was generally panned by critics and even UFC president Dana White when the show was over.
Now Krylov has a chance to redeem himself when he faces Harris on the undercard for the upcoming UFC on FOX show in Chicago.
