UFC veteran vs. Bellator veteran?
That never happens in regional MMA.

He gets it.
Look, we’re not gonna mince words on this one, friends: The Brawl in the Burgh 11 main event between Khama Worthy and Kaheem Murray is phenomenal.
Fans will be treated to a HUGE matchup in less than two weeks in Pittsburgh, as two of the world’s top lightweight talents meet in the center of the cage to throw down at the Monroeville Convention Center.
Khama’s faced a who’s who of top talent across his long career, competing against the biggest names and being elevated to the biggest stage in MMA. His five-fight UFC stint saw him pick up two massive wins (one via knockout and one via submission) against some of the biggest prospects in the UFC lightweight division.
When you look at Khama’s career, one thing is clear: He fights big name after big name and accepts all challenges. He fought Paul Felder, Billy Quarantillo, Matt Bessette, and Kyle Nelson before even getting to the UFC.
If you recognize those names, it’s probably because you’ve seen them in the legendary Octagon, too.
But it takes the right dance partner to make a perfect main event, and Kaheem Murray is that guy.
Kaheem is now 1-0 in Bellator, coming off of a dominant victory against a very big name in Kevin Ferguson Jr., son of UFC and street fighting legend Kimbo Slice.
This fight could very well be taking place on the biggest stage in Las Vegas. Instead, it’s right here in the Steel City. What an AWESOME present we get to see right here in our own backyard!
It’s Philadelphia vs. Pittsburgh.
It’s Bellator vs. UFC.
It’s the hometown hero vs. the party crasher.
These two are both at the very tip-top of their games, and they’re going to put on a show for the ages. That’s a fact.
You wouldn’t want to miss that, would you?
