Oklahoma City — Former local circuit MMA star Devin Powell  (8-2, Nostos NH) and  Sityodtong adopted UFC veteran Tony Martin (11-3) are slated to fight at UFC Fight Night: Chiesa vs. Lee scheduled for June 25th at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City.

Maine native Devin Powell returns to the Octagon a second time following a loss in January against Drakkar Klose via decision.  Powell faces off against lightweight Darrell Horcher (12-2) who is also looking to rebound from his loss last year against Khabib Nurmagomedov (24-0).

“He’s [Horcher] is a solid lefty.  He knocks people out.  He’s got alot of power but I’ve been working to make sure I’m moving the correct way at the correct time,” said Powell.

Leading up to next week’s fight, Powell worked to expose himself to new styles and workout partners including a month at American Top Team and attending the UFC’s fighter retreat.  Powell trains and operates Nostos MMA in New Hampshire with his fiance.

He found UFC stardom following his discovery by UFC President Dana White while in the New England Fights organization in the second season of  White’s reality show “Dana White: Looking for a Fight”.  Prior to his first UFC stint Powell had a string of four fights over six months that had punished his body.

“My body is feeling good, I’ve been slowly getting better ever since that last couple fights.  I have some mileage but overall I feel good,” said Powell.

Fellow lightweight Tony Martin (11-3)  attempts for his third win in a row in the UFC against Johnny Case (22-5).

UFC FN 112 offers a star studded card which meshes  new talent in the organization with some legendary main stays.  The card includes headliners Michael Chiesa, Kevin Lee, BJ Penn, Dennis Siver, Johny Hendricks, Tim Boetsch, and Clay Guida.
