War Machine, Joe Scarola in title bouts on June 20

Much-talked-about former "The Ultimate Fighter"contestants War Machine and Joe Scarola will fight in separate title fights at MMA Big Show "Conviction" on June 20 in Belterra, Indiana.

War Machine will fight for the MMA Big Show welterweight title against Roger Bowling, while Scarola will take on Joe Ammerman for the lightweight title.

War Machine (7-2) stepped in on short notice last month and submitted Guillaume Delorenzi via rear-naked choke in the first round. He is riding a two-fight winning streak since leaving the UFC on a loss to Yoshiyuki Yoshida at UFC 84 in May 2008.

Scarola (4-1) will be fighting for the first time since appearing on "The Ultimate Fighter 6: Hughes vs. Serra," which aired September 2007. His last fight was an armbar submission win in November 2006. He has won all his fights by submission in the first round.
