Dallas’ Rashad Coulter will be a late fill-in for Dmitry Poberezhets at UFC 211, which takes place in Dallas, TX on May 13.
Poberezhets was set to face Chase Sherman, but for unknown reasons, was forced to withdraw from the bout.
Coulter (8-1), who trains out of Fortis MMA, is a Legacy Fighting Alliance and Bellator vet, with his most recent win being a first round finish at the inaugural LFA show back in January of this year.
Coulter has pro boxing experience and has heavy hands, and is also an agile athlete for his size. I expect Coulter to be patient all while looking for the knockout.
