War Machine vs. Reshad Woods at UWC 6 on April 25

"The Ultimate Fighter 6" alum War Machine (7-2), formerly known as Jon Koppenhaver, will take on Reshad Woods (4-1) in a co-feature bout at UWC 6 "Capital Punishment" on April 25 in Fairfax, Virginia.

The bout will be contested at a catchweight of 175 pounds, as War Machine is a welterweight while Woods is closer to middleweight.

War Machine has supplemented his training at Undisputed in San Diego by putting in hours at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas. He's won two straight fights via first-round TKO since his release from the UFC. After Woods, Koppenhaver will set his sights on toppling another rising star when he takes on Roger Bowling at MMA Big Show "Conviction" on June 20 in Belterra, Indiana.

Woods is an up-and-comer from Team Lloyd Irvin in Camp Springs, Maryland. In his only fight in 2008, Woods scored a must-see knockout slam to pick up a fourth straight win. His slam in defense of a double armbar happens around the five minute mark.
