UFC.com has confirmed a welterweight fight between Team Quest’s Chris Wilson and Steve Bruno to take place at UFC 86: Jackson vs. Griffin.
Wilson was a late replacement for the injured Akihiro Gono at UFC 82 but proved his worth in the Octagon by making Jon Fitch tough out a grueling three round decision victory. The UFC obviously liked Wilson’s guts and have brought him back on board to fight again in a preliminary bout against Bruno.
Bruno is a product of American Top Team and will be making his debut inside the Octagon. Bruno has had much success in the Spirit MC promotion in Korea and this will be his first fight in over a year. He was supposed to make his UFC debut against Chad Reiner at UFC Fight Night 10 but had to withdraw from the bout due to injury.
