UFC 170: Undefeated Aljamain Sterling to Make Octagon Debut Versus Lucas Martins
By FCF Staff
With less than a month to go before UFC 170 goes down on February 22nd, undefeated bantamweight Aljamain Sterling has agreed to step in and fight Lucas Martins. The New York fighter is a replacement for the injured Bryan Caraway.
Sterling makes his way to the UFC having gone 8-0 since he turned pro in 2011. The 24 year-old is a former, three time, NCAA Division Three All-American wrestler and Cage Fury Fighting Championship’s bantamweight champ.
Martins (14-1), meanwhile, has gone 2-1 to date in the Octagon. Most recently the former lightweight choked out Ramiro Hernandez at UFC Fight Night 28 in September.
UFC 170 will be hosted by the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas and will feature bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey taking on Sara McMann.
