Two-time UFC veteran Chase Gormley (7-4) has agreed to fill the final open slot on Friday's XFC 16 event and now meets Brandon Sayles (2-0) in a super heavyweight contest.
The two meet on the main card of the Xtreme Fighting Championships' event.
Featuring a lightweight bout between former WEC champ Jamie Varner and UFC veteran Drew Fickett, "XFC 16: High Stakes," takes place Feb. 10 at Knoxville Civic Auditorium-Coliseum in Tennessee. The main card airs live on HDNet.
Gormley seeks his first win since May 2010. The Californian is best known for a two-fight octagon stint that featured losses to Brendan Schaub and Stefan Struve. He's since gone 1-2 on the regional scene, defeating Ryan Fortin in his first post-UFC fight before losing to Beau Tribolet and Mike Whitehead.
