UFC on Versus 4
Rick “The Horror” Story is prepared to write the next chapter in his life. After a career defining fight against former title contender Thiago Alves, Rick is fighting again. This will be his second fight in less than a month, but he is always up to the challenge. Staring at Rick across the Octagon is another former title challenger. Nate Marquardt, a former middleweight title contender, makes his welterweight debut. These two warriors will both be looking to make a statement at UFC on Versus 4. Nate wants to prove he can be a threat at 170 lbs and Rick sees a future title shot looming in the distance. Story, a wrestling stand out, proved he can stand and trade with the best of them. Rick stood in the pocket and traded with Thiago Alves, arguably one of the best strikers in MMA, and proved to the world that there was more to his game than wrestling. He will need to bring his complete arsenal against Marquardt. Rick will be able to wrestle, kick, punch and go anywhere the fight takes him as he will be wearing the Hayabusa Pro Competition Shiai Fight Shorts. Hayabusa is proud to sponsor this amazing athlete as Rick Story defines what “Spirit of the Fighter” means.
Matt Mitrione is one of a kind. This dynamic heavyweight is undefeated in his professional fighting career. Matt is 4-0, with three KO’s, and is quickly making an impact in the Octagon. He is fast, accurate and as heavy handed as they come. Matt, a former professional football player, has all the athletic tools it takes to make it in the UFC’s heavyweight division. Mitrione is a heavyweight that moves like a welterweight. His speed and agility combined with his fearsome power, makes Matt someone to keep an eye on.
