UFC Fight Night 13 Update: Nate Diaz to Fight Kurt Pellegrino

Dana White has added yet another fight to the UFC Fight Night 13 fight card.  Nate Diaz will be fighting Kurt Pellegrino as one of the latest additions to the event.  The card already looked good as it was, but this new bout has shaped it up tremendously.

Nate Diaz is 3-0 in the UFC winning all of his fights via submission.  He hasn’t been stopped yet, beating all of his opponents just the way he knows best- Cesar Gracie jiu-jitsu style. 

His first official UFC win was against Manvel Gamburyan during the Ultimate Fighter finale 5.  Thereafter,  he defeated Junior
Assuncao at Fight Night 11 and then Alvin Robinson at Fight Night 12.

Kurt Pellegrino is coming off a spectacular win over Alberto Crane, one of the most brutal fights of his career.  After almost losing in the first round, Pellegrino came back and dominated the entire second round.  He knocked out Crane cold for a TKO win via strikes at 1:55 in the second round.  He has won 4 of his last 5 fights, losing one of his fights to Joe Stevenson via a unanimous decision. 

Expect a war between two outstanding lightweights at UFC Fight Night 13.
