• Mark Bocek Vs Nik Lentz is set to take place at UFC 140!

  • The latest addition to the UFC 140 card is a fight between Mark Bocek and Nik Lentz. This lightweight battle is part of an event that will take place on December 10th 2011 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

     Mark Bocek has recently been a bit up and down with his form in the UFC, so a win in this fight would be great for him. In his last fight against Ben Henderson at UFC 129 he suffered a decision loss. A win against Nik Lentz would really get him back on track to start climbing up the division again. Out of nine fights for the UFC Mark has earned “submission of the night” twice, once via standing rear naked choke against Joe Brammer at The Ultimate Fighter 10 finale. The other was via triangle choke against Dustin Hazelett at UFC 124. If he gets the opportunity he will go for the sub so Nik Lents will need to be very careful.

     Nik Lentz was most recently in action against Charles Oliveira, the fight ended with a controversial victory for Oliveira in which an illegal knee was not seen by the referee. This lead to a submission victory for Charles which was soon overthrown by the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission and the loss was made into a non-contest. Lentz has had seven fights in the UFC and is undefeated so far. If he carries on this way and keeps defeating top band fighters within the division then he will have to be put in the mix for a title shot. A win over Mark Bocek would be solid for Lentz.

     Thanks guys,
