UFC 210 gets another exciting fight added to the lineup

The UFC has added another exciting fight to the UFC 210 card in Buffalo

On April 8th, UFC 210 will take place in Buffalo, NY. The main event of that card is the rematch for the Light Heavyweight championship between Daniel Cormier and Anthony “Rumble” Johnson.  The first time the two met, Daniel Cormier recovered from a shot that sent him flying, in order to submit Johnson in the third round.

Tonight the UFC announced another exciting clash to take place in Buffalo. Former Bellator champion Will Brooks will take on Charles Oliveira in a hotly contested Lightweight scrap. Both fighters are talented and it should prove a really fun fight for the fans.

Will Brooks (18-2) has gone 1-1 since jumping over to the UFC from Bellator.  He lost in his last outing to Alex Oliveira by TKO in the third round.  He’s the former Bellator champion, and was widely considered one of the best Lightweights in the world when he signed with the UFC. With his recent loss none withstanding, he’s still a very good fighter, who is trying to get a solid foothold in a very dangerous division.

Charles Oliveira (21-7) never met a fighter he didn’t want to submit. Extremely well versed on the mat, Oliveira is a submission machine.  He’s lost 3 of 4 fights, entering this contest.  His losses are to the elite of the division, having lost to Ricardo Lamas, Anthony Pettis and Max Holloway.  This is going to be a lot of fun and should result in fireworks.
