East coast MMA promotion Ultimate Warrior Challenge has announced that Mike Easton will face Chase Beebe for the first-ever UWC bantamweight championship in the main event of UWC: Man “O” War on February 21st at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia.
“The UWC has always been committed to delivering the highest quality fights for metro Washington, DC and east coast MMA fans,” said UWC CEO S. Marcello Foran in a press release announcing the fight. “That’s why we are so excited to announce the signing of this bout. Chase Beebe and Mike Easton are two of the best bantamweight fighters in America – if not the world – whose styles are tailor made for each other. If there was ever a ‘can’t miss’ fight for fans in the Washington, DC area, this is it.
“Booking this fight was a no-brainer. Both fighters are incredible athletes and always do a superb job of entertaining the crowd. We are dying to see how Beebe’s in-your-face grinding style will look against Easton’s first-rate athleticism and vicious knockout power. I know whoever wins this fight will have definitively earned the title ‘UWC Bantamweight Champion’.”
The Ultimate Fighter 8 cast member Antwain Britt will be in action in the co-main event against an opponent to be announced.
