Unbeaten Featherweights Debut in April

Unbeatens Bektic and Skelly added to UFC on FOX card on April 19 in Orlando...
Two of the top prospects in the featherweight division will enter the Octagon for the first time on April 19, as 7-0 Mirsad Bektic and 11-0 Chas Skelly meet at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.

Fresh off a first round TKO victory over WEC vet Joe Pearson in December, the 23-year-old Bektic has ended six of his seven wins by KO or submission. The 28-year-old Skelly, a member of the Team Takedown squad in Texas, has ended eight of his 11 victories before the final bell, making this an intriguing matchup where only one of these up and comers will leave with their "0" intact.
