In the first main card event in UFC Fight Island 4 live in Abu Dhabi and available on ESPN+, Dequan Townsend will take on Dusko Todorovic in a middleweight bout this Saturday.

Todorovic will have the edge in both age and record. The 26-year-old is entering a perfect 9-0 and makes his main roster debut. In his Dana White’s Contender Series defeat of Teddy Ash on August 27th, he averaged 6.8 significant strikes on 71 percent accuracy. He took a beating though as Ash landed 7.27 strikes on 38 percent accuracy.

He’ll be matched up with the 34-year-old Dequan “The Tarantula” Townsend. Townsend has a 21-11 MMA record, but is 0-3 at the UFC level with two via unanimous decision and one knockout. He’s also a heavy striker, knocking out 12 of his opponents as a part of those 21 victories.

Townsend will enter this fight as a heavy underdog.
