Lightweight prospect Terrance Mckinney will return to the octagon on 6th August vs Eric Gonzales

MMA Junkie earlier broke the news that they had two inside sources that confirmed that Terrance McKinney vs Eric Gonzales is a done deal. The promotion is yet to make an official announcement, but this latest tweet from McKinney is a source of confirmation.

McKinney lost his last fight to Drew Dober at UFC Vegas 50 after stepping in as a last-minute replacement, after picking up a submission win over Fares Ziam at UFC Fight Night 202 in February. Although the young fighter had tremendous initial success, he crumbled to the experience and durability of Dober. McKinney landed some powerful punches, knees and elbows almost on the verge of a victory. But Dober maintained his composure to survive the initial onrush and utilized his strength and conditioning to change the course of the fight.

Mckinney is keen to bounce back from his setback and remind the world that he should not be counted out as of yet. He reacted to the new on Twitter by saying, ‘ August 6 I’m back 💪🏾’

With the addition, the Aug. 6 lineup includes:

Thiago Santos vs. Jamahal Hill
Vicente Luque vs. Geoff Neal
Miranda Granger vs. Cory McKenna
Stephanie Egger vs. Mayra Bueno Silva
Erick Gonzalez vs. Terrance McKinney

‘I’m ready’ – Terrance McKinney reacts to rumored fight between Nate Diaz and Khamzat Chimaev

The idea of the fight has MMA community divided- while some believe that it’s only natural that the UFC would want to pit their upcoming star against a bonafide veteran like Diaz, others believe that the UFC is setting up Diaz for failure in his last fight inside the octagon.

UFC lightweight prospect Terrance McKinney was quick to jump on the news, and he expressed his excitement over the idea of that fight. McKinney was part of the side who were exhilarated by the idea, and posted his reaction on Twitter. He said, ‘ I’m ready for that Diaz x Chimaev fight ’
