Nik Lentz UFC

Ron Chenoy-USA Today Sports

UFC Fight For The Troops 3 is shaping up, as another terrific bout has been added to the card. Nik Lentz and Dennis Bermudez will battle it out for featherweight supremacy. This fight is a fantastic featherweight bout, which gives the winner the chance to put their name in the hat to challenge for the title.

Coming into this matchup, Lentz sports an impressive record of 24-5-2-1. He is currently on a three-fight-win streak, and has looked exceptional since dropping down from the lightweight division. Lentz has a grinder-fight style, and he likes to use his wrestling to wear his opponents down. He will be looking to do the same against Bermudez, who also has some great wrestling chops of his own.

Bermudez came up short in his TUF finale bout against Diego Brandao, but has been able to put together some nice wins as of late. He is currently on a four-fight winning streak, beating some formidable foes in Pablo Garza, Matt Grice and Max Holloway. A win over Lentz would be huge for his career, and solidifies his status as being an elite featherweight.

Both of these fighters are well-rounded, and it may come down to who has the best cardio and who can implement their strategy. Currently, Jose Aldo is the featherweight champion and has looked phenomenal over the years. The winner of this bout may get to fight for the title very soon, so both Lentz and Bermudez will look to make a statement when they square off.

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.

Appearing on Submission Radio De Mars once again spoke out on Tarverdyan commenting on Rousey’s loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193. “I predicted it in advance Ronda trained with an idiot and a fraud” said De Mars.
