Duane Ludwig vs. Nick Osipczak targeted for UFC 122

by Ken Pishna | source: mmaweekly.com

The fight card for UFC 122 in Oberhausen, Germany, continues to come together. MMAWeekly.com has learned from sources close to the bout that verbal agreements are in place to pit Nick Osipczak against Duane “Bang” Ludwig in a welterweight bout at the Konig Pilsener Arena.

British fighter Osipczak (5-2) is likely on his last leg on the Octagon. After starting strong coming off “The Ultimate Fighter: Team U.S.A. vs. Team U.K.” with wins over Frank Lester and Matt Riddle, Osipczak has since dropped back-to-back decision losses to Rick Story and Greg Soto. He likely needs a win to remain on the roster.

Ludwig (19-11) is also on a two-fight skid, but under vastly different circumstances. He stepped up on short notice for a tough bout against lightweight contender Jim Miller less than a month after his last Ring of Fire appearance, and then faced Octagon newcomer Darren Elkins in March, losing the bout due to a severe injury.

I don't understand how Ludwig can take this fight after that horrible injury he suffered in march.

Agreed. I am glad to see Duane back! He has had some WARS and very exciting fights! Such an amazing striker and he has really come a long way w/his grappling. I hope he gets to showcase all of that.
