Natal (14-4-1) returns to action after having a two-fight win-streak broken by Andrew Craig at UFC on Fuel TV 4. While the Brazilian seemed to be cruising to victory, a well-timed head-kick by Craig put an end to his night. Prior to that loss, “Sapo” defeated Paul Bradley and Michael Kuiper.
Spencer (9-1) is riding a three-fight win-streak. Although “Black Magic” usually competes at welterweight, he will be moving up to 185 lb. to take this opportunity. The prospect from Virginia was originally slated to meet Roy Spoon at Legacy FC’s April show, but signed to the UFC with the promotion’s blessing.
UFC on FOX 6 takes place January 26 at United Center in Chicago. The card is anchored by Demetrious Johnson making the first defense of his newly minted UFC Flyweight Championship against TUF 14 winner John Dodson.
