On Tuesday, seven fights were announced for the upcoming UFC 216 pay-per-view event at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., on Oct. 7.
Several intriguing lightweight contests were added to the card, including a battle between striking specialists Lando Vannata and Abel Trujillo. “Groovy” is just 1-2 in the Octagon so far, but he’s earned performance bonuses in each of his UFC appearances including his most recent Fight of the Night outing against David Teymur that ended in Vannata taking a unanimous decision loss.
Trujillo saw a three-fight win streak halted in his last fight when he was submitted by James Vick. The Blackzilians product holds a 6-3 UFC record with one no-contest.
