Cody 'AK Kid' McKenzie, one of the only Alaskans currently fighting in the UFC, will take on Octagon newcomer Marcus Levesseur on Tuesday, May 15th. The main card will be broadcast on the Fox cable station FUEL (channel 307 on GCI).
The fight is something of a must-win for McKenzie. After making his way to the quarter-finals on the reality show The Ultimate Fighter and starting his UFC tenure off with a win against Aaron Wilkinson, he dropped his net two matches for the worlds largest MMA promotion. It is unlikely he can afford to lose three fights in a row and remain signed with the UFC.
While McKenzie's match is not scheduled to be televised, the promotion often shows fights from the undercard if it's main card bouts run short, so you never know.
