MMA veteran Tyler “The Evolution” Stinson now has an opponent for his World Series of Fighting debut.
Stinson will take on Valdir “BBMonster” Araujo, who will also be fighting for the promotion for the first time, at WSOF 8, Jan. 18, 2014, at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Holywood, Fla.
The Evolution, a veteran of Strikeforce and Bellator MMA, comes into the bout on a two-fight winning streak, winning both of his last fights ending by knockout in the first round. Meanwhile BBMonster, who has also fought in Bellator, as well as CFA, has gone 3-0 in his last three bouts, with all of his fights being finishes, including a 33-second KO over Cinaldo Gorilao.
This should be a good match-up as both fighters are well rounded and will want to make a statement in their WSOF debuts.
