He was responsible for the strip-sack of Garrett Gilbert to secure Alabama’s first national championship versus Texas under Nick Saban in 2009; however, Eryk Anders is about to return to a different form of competition.
As an Ultimate Fighting Championship competitor, the former Crimson Tide linebacker is returning to the octagon in two weeks for a rematch against Darren Stewart. The two battled on March 13, but the fight ended in a draw.
Anders and Stewart will be on the UFC 263 card for Saturday, June 12, in prelims for the Light Heavyweight Bout. Anders is 13-5 in his career, including one fight ending in “No Contest.”
Stewart comes in at 12-6 and has two fights that ended in no contest.
