Casey vs. Natal Added to Newark Show

 

An eye injury prompted a premature end to his December bout against Antonio Carlos Junior, but middleweight prospect Kevin Casey will get a chance to extend his unbeaten streak to seven when he faces veteran Rafael Natal in UFC Fight Night action on January 30 in Newark, New Jersey.

The FOX-televised event at Prudential Center is headlined by the light heavyweight bout between Anthony "Rumble" Johnson and Ryan "Darth" Bader. Tickets are on sale now.

A member of the Ultimate Fighter 17 cast, Casey has won four bouts since a 2013 loss to Josh Samman, most recently decisioning Ildemar Alcantara in July. In Natal, he will face a fighter on the verge of the top 15, as "Sapo" has won three straight over Chris Camozzi, Tom Watson and Uriah Hall.
