The UFC Portland card has another sizeable addition on its hands. Sherdog was among the first to report the addition of Eryk Anders vs. Krzysztof Jotko to the Fight Night event, which takes place this coming April.
The card is headlined by a heavyweight bout featuring Alistair Overeem and Walt Harris.
Anders (13-4) is a former LFA middleweight champion who joined the UFC in 2017. The ex-football player showed plenty of promise early on, quickly getting a headlining spot against Lyoto Machida in just his third UFC outing. After losing that fight in a controversial split decision, Anders embarked on a 1-4 stretch, but has bounced back in his last two fights, getting the better of Vinicius Moreira and Gerald Meerschaert.
He’ll look to make it three wins in a row against Jotko (21-4), who like Anders will enter the contest on a two-fight win streak. In his last two performances, Jotko has earned wins against Alen Amedovski and Marc-Andre Barriault.
