Ian Entwistle makes his second appearance with the UFC on the December 6th UFC on Fox event. His first fight with the UFC was a losing effort to Daniel Hooker in June at UFC Fight Night: Te Huna vs. Marquardt. He has a record of 8-2 (0-1 with the UFC), an impressive 6 of those wins came via submission.
Anthony Birchack is making his UFC debut against Entwistle. Birchack was the scheduled opponent for Joe Soto at UFC 177, we all know why that fight didn’t take place (for those that don’t Renan Barao failed to make weight and had to withdraw from his rematch with TJ Dillashaw and Soto took Renan’s title shot and his spot in the main event). He has compiled an MMA record of 11-1, and he also has 6 wins via submission.
