UFC Signs Former Competitor Peter Sobotta

Peter Sobotta will have another chance to prove his worth in the Octagon as it appears as though the UFC has re-signed the German welterweight. Sobotta is widely expected to make his Octagon return on the UFC’s card from Berlin on May 31. Competing outside the UFC, Sobotta has gone 5-0-1 with all of his wins coming via first-round submission.

Sean O’Connell Steps in to Face Ryan Jimmo at TUF: Nations Finale

After a shoulder injury forced Steve Bosse to pull out of his scheduled fight with Ryan Jimmo, Sean O’Connell is stepping up on short notice. O’Connell will be making his UFC debut but has 10 stoppages in 15 victories, and sports a 15-4 overall record.

Jimmo will look to rebound from a TKO loss (due to leg injury) to Jimi Manuwa. The TUF: Nations Finale is scheduled to be headlined by a middleweight fight between Tim Kennedy and Michael Bisping. Opposing coaches on TUF: Nations Patrick Cote and Kyle Noke are set to square off as well.
