James Vick and Kyle Bochniak will both have their first fight following a UFC stint on January 30th, being booked for separate bouts on an XMMA card.
Announced by the promotion on Wednesday, the matchups are among four that will happen at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in Palm Beach, Florida, USA.
James Vick To Face Andre Fialho
Vick will fight Andre Fialho in a welterweight bout. The fight will be Vick’s first after a 14-fight UFC run. His run concluded in 2020 after four consecutive losses from 2018 to 2019, which included three stoppages.
Fialho will attempt to break a losing streak of his own on the card. The former Bellator and PFL fighter has lost three-in-a-row, most recently dropping a bout to Antonio dos Santos Jr. on an LFA card.
Kyle Bochniak Matched With Caio Uruguai
Bochniak, a former UFC featherweight, will face Caio Uruguai on the same card. Bochniak had a negative record in his UFC run, finishing with a record of two wins and five losses.
Before entering the UFC, Bochniak was undefeated in CES with six-straight wins.
Uruguai has lost his last two MMA bouts, dropping bouts to Jason Soares and Timothy Teves in Titan FC. He has competed in a kickboxing bout since, where he won over Bruce Lutchmedial.
