Welterweight Claude Patrick and undefeated heavyweight Travis Browne have signed with the UFC and will make their Octagon debuts in June, while the WEC has added featherweight Sengoku veteran Chan Sung Jung. All three signings were reported on Friday by MMAjunkie.
Patrick (11-1), who inked a four-fight deal with the UFC and will reportedly debut in his native Canada at UFC 115 on June 12 in Vancouver, suffered his lone career loss to UFC vet Drew McFedries in 2002, but has reeled off 10-straight stoppages since, including a third-round submission of Matt MacGrath last month.
Browne (9-0), a one-time Bellator fighter, improved to 9-0 with a 35-second knockout in February and is expected to face The Ultimate Fighter 10 semifinalist James McSweeney in June at UFC 115 or the TUF 11 Finale.
Jung (7-1) was eliminated from Sengoku’s featherweight tournament after suffering his first career loss to Masanori Kanehara last May, but rebounded with a second-round submission of Matt Jaggers in his most-recent bout in August. His WEC debut has yet to be determined.
