Terry Etim and Justin Buckholz were originally slated to face off against one another at UFC 95 in February, however Buckholtz had to be replaced on short notice by Brian Cobb, due to a staph infection. Etim went on to out strike, and outclass Cobb at the event. Now, Fighters Only Magazine is reporting that Etim vs. Buckholz is back on, and this time for UFC 99: The Comeback in Cologne, Germany.
Etim is now on a two fight winning streak, including the win over Cobb, and just signed a new four fight deal with “improved terms”. Buckholz on the other hand is coming off of a Submission victory over Corey Hill at UFC 86, giving him five wins in his last six fights, all via stoppage.
