Also notable on the main card is a light heavyweight fight between William Knight and Marcin Prachnio.

Knight (11-4) is on a two fight losing streak and has struggled to stay consistent at the UFC level. Despite losing twice in a row, he has a win over Alonzo Menifield and has shown that he can compete in a key fight. With a significant strike accuracy of 59%, Knight also possess the mat skills of a solid brawler. He now comes back down to 205 pounds and will look to get back in the win column.

Prachnio (15-6) is also coming off a loss in his last appearance, an unanimous decision defeat to Philipe Lins. Like Knight, his career has been up and down, with some really good wins along with a few questionable losses. Prachnio will have the height advantage of 6’3” and must do all he can to slow down the power of Knight. A karate style fighter, he tends to stay away from grappling and will have to avoid it at all costs if he wants to land a win in this matchup.
