Lamas rebooked to face Oliveira at TUF Latin America 3 Finale
The rescheduling for Manila’s cancelled UFC Fight Night 97 has begun with No. 4 featherweight Ricardo Lamas (16-5-0) facing Charles Oliveira (21-6-0, 1NC) in the co-main event of the TUF Latin American 3 Finale.
Welcome back to The Crossfire.
Lamas’ former UFC Fight Night 97 opponent BJ Penn, continues to recover from an injury sustained during training.
Oliveira is looking to bounce back from a submission loss to Anthony Pettis at UFC on FOX 21.
In addition, Sam Alvey and Alex Nicholson have also been rescheduled for Mexico City.
Other UFC Fight Night 97 fighters are expected to be rebooked at other future events, while being compensated for losing their bouts.
The TUF Latin America 3 Finale takes place Nov. 5 in Mexico City, Mexico. Former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos takes on Tony Ferguson in the main event.
