Adam Milstead vs. Curtis Blaydes

Adam Milstead (8-1) has his second UFC bout set, as he’ll travel to Houston on Feb. 4 to face Curtis Blaydes (6-1) at UFC Fight Night 104. The event takes place at the Toyota Center and coincides with Super Bowl LI, which takes place the next night at NRG Stadium.

Milstead made his UFC debut earlier this  year after signing a four-fight deal, and he was victorious in his first outing with a second round TKO over Chris de la Rocha at UFC Fight Night 88. After losing his pro debut, the Pittsburgh native has reeled off eight straight wins, all of which have come via stoppage.

Blaydes is 1-1 in the UFC. After a 5-0 start to his career, the Elevation Fight Team product made his UFC debut in April, but came up short in a TKO loss to Francis Ngannou. He rebounded in his second outing, however, as he stopped Cody East with a TKO due to elbows at UFC Fight Night 96 in October. He’s a former juco national champion wrestler and is considered one of the top heavyweight prospects in the UFC along with Milstead.

UFC Fight Night 104 airs live on FOX Sports 1 and will be headlined by a featherweight bout between the returning Chan Sung Jung and Dennis Bermudez.
