Cedenblad (10-4) came into the UFC riding a seven-fight win-streak. Unfortunately for the Swede, his run came to an end when he met Francis Carmont at UFC on Fuel TV 2, as “Limitless” scored a rear-naked choke in the second period, forcing “Jycken” to tap. Cedenblad now looks to get his first victory inside the octagon at the expense of Natal.
“Sapo” (14-4-1) is 2-2-1 inside the UFC, most recently having a two-fight run snapped by Andrew Craig in July. In an all out war, Craig was able to knockout the Brazilian in the second round after handily dropping the first. Natal has taken victories over Michael Kuiper and Paul Bradley during his promotional tenure.
UFC on Fox 6 is headlined by the first defense of the newly minted flyweight championship, as Demetrious Johnson looks to hold on to the strap against the surging John Dodson.
