Light Heavyweight Jake Collier vs. Marcel Fortuna

Jake Collier (10-4, UFC 2-3) made his Light Heavyweight debut on April 9th this year, losing a decision.  He lost his 1st 2 UFC matches by TKO.  Collier entered the UFC with a career peppered with KO’s and/submissions.  His last victory was a Performance Of The Night TKO against Alberto Uda. With flashes of excitement, he needs to bring that out for good. Marcel Fortuna (9-2, UFC 1-1) has other plans though. A 3rd degree Black belt, Fortuna signed with the UFC at heavyweight and KO’d Anthony Hamilton, earning Performance Of The Night.  He went back to Light Heavyweight in July 2017, losing by decision.  Fortuna is better suited for LHW  and is a BJJ world-class talent with 5 submission victories. Keep your eyes on this bout. Make sure you have UFC Fight Pass first. UFC Fight Night 120.
