Saki returns to face Rountree at UFC 219

Fresh from a spectacular UFC debut last month, kickboxing icon Gokhan Saki will look to make it two for two in the Octagon when he faces fellow striker Khalil Rountree Jr. in a UFC 219 bout at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Dec. 30.

Winner of 83 pro kickboxing bouts, 59 of them by knockout, Turkey's Saki showed off his standup prowess against Henrique da Silva in Japan last month, knocking his opponent out in the first round and winning Performance of the Night honors in the process. This December, he will meet former Ultimate Fighter finalist Rountree, who is coming off back-to-back knockout victories over Daniel Jolly and Paul Craig.
