Wilson is a veteran of the International Fight League (IFL) and Bodog Fight. He has strung together four straight wins against solid competitors such as Rory Markham, Jay Heiron and Derrick Noble during that stretch.
He’s a tough guy who will be thrown in the deep end against an experienced UFC veteran like Fitch in his Octagon debut. It’s an incredible opportunity, however, to make an instant splash in the organization much like Houston Alexander did when he burst onto the scene to dash the title chances of Keith Jardine.
This is an excellent fight and an interesting IFL – UFC crossover. Regrettably, Wilson’s wrestling isn’t as good as Fitch’s, but folks, if you are not familiar with Wilson’s striking then you are fucking around. Wilson’s striking is absolutely fantastic and easily some of the best at welterweight. Believe it.
