Akihiro Gono will be taking on Tamden McCrory at UFC 78 as part of the fight card that will be taking place for the very first time at Newark, New Jersey on November 17th.
The former PrideFC welterweight contender will be looking to fight for the very first time in the octagon as he recently signed a 4-fight deal with the UFC. Nicknamed the Magic man, he is very well known for his ability to submit his opponents with great quickness.
McCrory is probably one of the tallest fighters in his weight class. At only 20 years of age, McCrory has shown everyone the he has tremendous strength and is also very talented with his submission skills. His last fight was against Pete Spratt at the Ultimate Fight Night 10, where submitted his opponent via a triangle choke and remains undefeated today at 9-0.
