Njokuani, Cruickshank Meet in Halifax

Expect to see plenty of hard-hitting striking action on October 4 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, as stand-up standouts Anthony Njokuani and Daron Cruickshank meet in a UFC Fight Night bout at Scotiabank Centre.

Known for his spectacular knockout wins in the WEC, Las Vegas' Njokuani has shown glimpses of that prowess in his UFC victories against John Makdessi and Roger Bowling, as well as in his Fight of the Night clash against Edson Barboza. Detroit's Cruickshank has won five Octagon bouts since his stint on season 15 of The Ultimate Fighter, including 2014 knockouts of Erik Koch and Mike Rio.
