Chris Wilson vs. Mike Pyle Added to UFC Fight Night 19

Mike PyleWelterweight Mike Pyle will look to bounce back from his UFC debut loss when he faces Chris Wilson at UFC Fight Night 19 on September 16 in Oklahoma City.

Fanhouse first reported the matchup on Sunday evening, with the bout expected to be finalized later this week.

Wilson (14-5), a former IFL fighter, is 1-2 in the UFC, suffering a loss to Jon Fitch in his Octagon debut and losing to John Howard in January in his most-recent fight, while picking up his lone UFC victory over Steve Bruno in August.

Pyle (19-6-1) made his UFC debut on short notice in May as a fill-in for Wilson, losing to Brock Larson via first-round submission at UFC 98. An Affliction, EliteXC, Strikeforce, Sengoku, WEC, and IFL veteran, “Quicksand” had previously won four-straight fights before the May loss.

UFC Fight Night 19, which will be televised live on Spike, is also rumored to feature Roger Huerta vs. Gray Maynard and Dan Miller vs. Aaron Simpson.
