Sandoval, a 25-year-old prospect out of Bighead MMA, looks to rebound after suffering the professional loss of his career in his 77-second UFC debut against Walel Watson. Prior to the setback, the native Texan ripped though six straight wins inside regional promotions.
Denis, affectionately known as "The Ninja of Love", is a 5'6" knockout artist from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
