It looked like, for a couple of days there, that Tarec Saffiedine would not fight Rick Story this Sunday. But, recently it was reported that doctor’s have cleared the former Strikeforce welterweight champ for battle after all (Saffiedine had a knee injury looked at).
As a result, this is likely why the UFC recently posted the video below, which follows Saffiedine as he spends time with family and friends in his native Belgium. As his wife notes in the video, Saffiedine is becoming a big deal in Belgium, thanks to his MMA success.
Sunday’s bout will mark the first time Saffiedine has fought since January, when he outscored Jake Ellenberger for the UD win. Story is a tough out for anyone, so, that’s a fight that could be outstanding (assuming Saffiedine isn’t hindered too much by the injury).
UFC FN 88 will take place in Las Vegas.
