Personality can take a fighter far in the UFC. However, without some level of success to back it up, even the most entertaining competitor’s job is at risk. Two men who fit said description are featherweights Leonard Garcia and Cody McKenzie, as both are well-liked but haven’t found any level of consistency where victory is concerned.
Despite their popularity among certain segments of the fanbase, a bout almost certainly leaving the loser looking for a new organization to call home between Garcia and McKenzie has been added UFC 159. The two were originally supposed to fight at UFC 155 but McKenzie was forced out of the match-up with an injury.
Garcia confirmed the April 27 tilt on his Twitter account.
The 15-10-1 Garcia has lost five of his last six fights including four in a row. Comparably, McKenzie is 13-3 with stumbles in three of four previous pairings.
