Bochniak’s return

Gloucester’s Kyle Bochniak will be returning to the UFC cage in October, and he will be fighting in front of a home town crowd at the TD Garden in Boston.

According to multiple media reports Bochniak, who is 8-4 as a professional mixed martial artist and 2-4 in six UFC fights, will be taking on 6-0 Sean Woodson, who will be making his UFC debut, on October 18. The card will air on ESPN and will be headlined by former UFC middleweight champ Chris Weidman against undefeated up and comer Dominick Reyes.

Bochniak, who fights at featherweight (145 pounds) last fought in December when he dropped a unanimous decision to Hakeem Dawodou, his second straight defeat in the organization.

This will be Bochniak’s third fight at TD Garden. He dropped his UFC debut back in January of 2016 against Peabody native Charles Rosa and defeated Brandon Davis in January 2018.
