UFC On FX Fight Card: Nick Denis Debuts Against Joseph Sandoval

A bantamweight bout between Joseph Sandoval (6-1) and recently-signed Nick Denis (10-2) has been confirmed for the fight card of UFC on FX.

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. He storms into the UFC on the heels of a stunning performance against Nick Mamalis that ended with a violent suplex knockout. Previously, Denis racked up wins in nine of eleven contests, with eight of them coming by way of knockout.

UFC on FX takes place on January 20, 2012 in Nashville, Tennessee. Volatile lightweight Melvin Guillard duels former number-one contender Jim Miller in the night's main event.
