Fury FC 50 takes place Sunday, September 5, 2021 with 18 fights at Bayou City Event Center in Houston, Texas.
In the main event, Anthony “The Genius” Romero (9-0) fighting out of Ontario, Canada thinks he is very close to his goal of fighting in the UFC if he can pull an impressive win this Sunday which will likely get him that contract. Romero will be going against JJ Okanovich (7-2) fighting out of San Jose, California.
Romero was on Dana White’s Contender Series 2020 and defeated Mike Breeden (10-3) by a dominant unanimous decision. As we know, Dana decided not to hand him a UFC contract. Instead of Romero signing with Bellator, PFL or any other organization, he fought against Zach Juusola (12-7) and was able to defeat him by split deciaion at LFA 96: Mendonça vs. Dagvadorj.
His opponent Okanovich, is another fighter who won on Dana White’s Contender Series 2019 but was denied a contract after defeating Christian Lohsen by unanimous decision back in 2019. He went on and fought at LFA 98: Fremd vs. Oliveira and lost against Lucas Clay by unanimous decision. Okanovish has previously competed in LFA, Bellator, and Dana White’s Contender Series.
This event will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass at 2 p.m. ET on Sunday, September 5, 2021. This event will take place at Bayou City Event Center in Houston, Texas.
