Light heavyweight Ivan Serati (10-2) will make his UFC debut against Tomasz Drwal (14-2) at UFC 93 on January 17th in Dublin, Ireland, according to Fighters Only.
Serati, who signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC in September, is a Cage Rage veteran who has won five-straight bouts including his most recent victory, an August 30th knockout of Claudio da Silva at a No Limits MMA event in Italy.
Drwal, among Europe’s top light heavyweights, made his unsuccessful debut with the UFC at UFC 75 last September, losing to Thiago Silva via second-round TKO. He had previously won thirteen-straight bouts.
UFC 93 features a light heavyweight clash between former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin and former PRIDE champion Dan Henderson and a 205-pound battle between UFC hall of famer Mark Coleman and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
