Anthony Birchak (L) throws a kick (Wilson Fox/Sherdog)Anthony Birchak vs. Joe Soto Rebooked for UFC Fight Night 68 José Youngs March 18, 2015 Events, News, Spotlight Let’s try this again. On Wednesday afternoon, the UFC announced they had officially rebooked the bantamweight contest between Anthony Birchak and former title contender Joe Soto for the upcoming UFC Fight Night 68 in June. The two were originally scheduled to meet at UFC 177 last August, in what was expected to be both man’s UFC debut, before Soto was promoted to the main event opposite UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw. This reshuffling came after it was revealed Dillashaw’s original opponent Renan Barão was forced to withdraw from the title fight after passing out during his weight-cut just hours before the weigh-ins. Soto (15-3), also a former Tachi Palace Fights and Bellator MMA champion, would go on to suffer a fifth round TKO to Dillashaw. Prior to this setback, the man known as ‘One Bad Mofo’ had strung together six straight wins under various other promotions. He will enter this bout with 12 career stoppage wins, including eight by way of submission. Birchak (11-2), a former MFC champion, was last seen suffering a heart breaking first round submission loss in his UFC debut to Ian Entwistle at UFC on FOX 13. This setback snapped the Phoenix native’s five fight twin streak, which included a decision over UFC flyweight Chris Benoit and TKO over UFC bantamweight Roman Salazar. ‘El Tore’ will enter this bout with nine career stoppage wins, including six by way of knockout. UFC Fight Night 68 is scheduled to take place on June 6 live on FOX Sports 1 from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans. A light heavyweight bout between Ryan Bader and Daniel Cormier will serve as the main event.
