Following a successful win on TV show “Dana White’s Contender Series,” Josh Parisian will make his UFC debut on November 28th when he faces Parker Porter. The heavyweight bout was first reported by Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie.
Parisian appeared on the third episode of the UFC’s fourth season of the “Contender Series” last Tuesday, defeating Chad Johnson in the first round to earn his UFC contract. The win extended his winning streak to six-in-a-row.
