Beal vs. Yamamoto Heads to Ottawa

 

Hoping to snap a two-fight losing streak in Ottawa, former Ultimate Fighter standout Chris Beal will face Japanese superstar Kid Yamamoto in a bantamweight bout at TD Place Arena on June 18.

In the UFC Fight Night main event, top welterweight contenders collide when Rory MacDonald faces Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson. FOX Sports 1 will televise the card.

One of Japan's most revered fighters, 39-year-old Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto will be back in the Octagon for the first time since a controversial no contest against Roman Salazar in February of 2015. Looking to spoil his return is California's "Real Deal" Beal, who is 2-2 thus far in his UFC career.
