Nik Lentz vs. Manny Gamburyan added to UFC Fight Night in Cincinnati

BY Damon Martin • February 20, 2014

The upcoming UFC Fight Night card in Cincinnati keeps growing by the day with the latest addition pitting Nik Lentz against Manny Gamburyan in a featherweight fight that will go down on May 10.

Lentz (24-6-2, 1 NC) was targeting a title shot prior to his last bout, but the wrestler came up short in his bid to secure top contender status after losing a decision to No. 1 ranked featherweight Chad Mendes.

Prior to that fight, Lentz was undefeated at 145 pounds so following the setback he will certainly look to impress in his next fight back in May.

Manny Gamburyan (13-8) will do everything in his power to hand Lentz his second loss as a featherweight while also bouncing back from his own defeat in December when he fell to German fighter Dennis Siver.  

A training partner and close friend of UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, Gamburyan will try to find consistency with his next upcoming fight after putting together a 2-4 record overall in his last six fights.

The UFC has not yet announced a bout order for the card so there is no word on where Lentz vs. Gamburyan will be placed on the show.
