Shark Fights Card Adds Paul Bradley vs. Johnny Rees

The intriguing Shark Fights 13 event scheduled for Sept. 11 has added further depth, adding former UFC fighter Johnny Rees against Strikeforce veteran Paul Bradley to the card.

A source close to the fight confirmed the matchup to MMA Fighting.

Amazingly, both men have the same record, 12-2 with one no contest.

Rees, who had two fights in the UFC in 2008, has won two straight bouts, while Bradley had a no contest in his last bout after an unexpected rain storm caused an early finish to an outdoor matchup.

The two men have had very similar career arcs; Rees won his first 10 pro fights before moving on to the UFC, where he lost twice. Bradley went 11-1 before getting a shot with Strikeforce, where he's gone 1-1.

Shark Fights, which airs from the Civic Center Coliseum in Amarillo, Texas, is expected to air on pay-per-view.

In the main-event, longtime UFC star Keith Jardine faces MMA veteran Trevor Prangley, while Rameau Thierry Sokdoudjou squares off with Houston Alexander in the co-main event.

Other name fighters including Paul "Semtex" Daley and Joey Villasenor are also signed for the event.
