UFC veteran and TUF Smashes winner Norman Parke has his first fight announced since his somewhat surprising UFC exit earlier this year after his loss to Rustam Khabilov.
The Northern Irishman will face the undefeated Valdo Sikic (10-0) in the FFC promotion in Austria this September. Parke revealed the news via his facebook page:
"Hi guys! I'm now announcing that my next fight will be against undefeated 10-0 striker "Valdo Sikic" this will be main event on FFC ( Final Fight championship) in Austria, September. This is where my next journey starts, I will be heading out Thailand to prepare for this fight and be in the best possible shape I can. I promise to finish him in this fight and get back to my best!"
29-year-old Parke went 5-3-1 in the UFC over the space of three years and proved himself as one of the toughest to beat. All of his loses were via decision and never looked in any danger during any of them. His last win came against Reza Medadi in Dublin last October.
