Undefeated Waldo Cortes-Acosta To Make UFC Debut Against Jared Vanderaa on October 29th

Undefeated heavyweight Waldo Cortes-Acosta already has his first UFC fight booked.

Cortes-Acosta is scheduled to face Jared Vanderaa at UFC’s October 29th event, as announced by the promotion on Tuesday night. The fight is joining a card that is expected to take place at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Cortes-Acosta earned a UFC contract just earlier this month, using punches to score a first-round finish victory over Danilo Suzart on “Dana White’s Contender Series.”

The fight was Cortes-Acosta’s seventh win as a pro. Previous appearances include stoppage wins in LFA and a decision victory in Bellator.

Vanderaa is currently amid a long losing streak. He took his fourth consecutive defeat in early July, getting finished in the first round of a bout against Chase Sherman.
