Tyrone Spong vs. Jake Heun set as the co-main event of WSOF 26



Tyrone Spong returns to MMA competition for the first time since 2013 to take on Jake “The Honey Bear” Heun at WSOF 26.

The bout was confirmed in a press release from the promotion on Wednesday.

Spong (2-0) is one of the most seasoned out there, having competed in MMA, boxing and kickboxing. He has had almost 100 professional kickboxing bouts, and has only fought two boxing bouts since suffering a horrific leg injury in the Glory ring when he fought Gokhan Saki in early 2014. Both his professional MMA victories have taken place in the WSOF cage.

Heun (8-4) is a veteran of two seasons of The Ultimate Fighter. He is coming off a submission win over Davin Clark at WSOF 22, this is his sole victory since being submitted by Clifford Starks at WSOF 19. He was originally set to fight Teddy Holder at WSOF 19, but ended up fighting Starks after Holder moved to the main card to fight Thiago Silva when Matt Hamill pulled out due to illness on just hours notice.

As of right now, it looks as if this fight will serve as the nights co-main event.

WSOF 26 takes place on December 18 from the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. This is one of two bouts confirmed for the card, the other being Thiago Silva vs. Ronny Markes. Lance Palmer will also defend his featherweight title, though no opponent has been announced, it looks like he may face the winner of Saul Almeida vs. Alexandre de Almeida which takes place this weekend at WSOF 24.
