By FCF Staff
The line-up for the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s second trip to Toronto, Ontario, continues to build, as today the promotion announced that lightweights Mark Bocek (pictured) and Nik Lentz have agreed to fight at the December 10th card. UFC 140 will be hosted by Toronto’s Air Canada Centre.
Bocek (9-4) will be competing for the first time since April, when the BJJ black belt lost by unanimous decision to Ben Henderson at UFC 129. Prior to the loss Bocek submitted Dustin Hazelett with a first round, triangle-choke, at UFC 124 last December.
Lentz (21-3-2) is coming off a No Contest ruling versus Charles Oliveira in June, after Oliveira struck the Minnesota fighter with an illegal knee to the head. Lentz had won four straight bouts heading into the fight, a run which included wins over Andre Winner and Tyson Griffin.
Some of the other bouts that have been confirmed for UFC 140 include Tito Ortiz vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Frank Mir vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Brian Ebersole vs. Rory MacDonald, and Rich Attonito vs. Claude Patrick.
