Bocek vs. Lentz Confirmed For UFC 140
Another lightweight bout has been confirmed for the UFC’s return trip to Toronto in the form of Nik Lentz vs. Mark Bocek.
UFC 140 is set to take place in Toronto on December 10 from the Air Canada Centre. The only main card bouts confirmed for the event at this time is set between Rory MacDonald vs. Brian Ebersole and now Frank Mir vs. “Big Nog”.
Training out of the Minnesota Martial Arts Academy, Nick Lentz is currently riding a 16-fight unbeaten streak. However, “unbeaten” is not a win streak necessarily. He fought Thiago Tavares to a draw and had the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission overturn a loss to a non-contest in his most recent outing, when Charles Oliveira struck him with an illegal knee that the ref missed.
Bocek was enjoying a nice 4-0 streak until he ran into lightweight contender, Ben Henderson, who was able to pick up a unanimous decision victory over the BJJ black belt. His only UFC losses come way of the aforementioned Henderson, Jim Miller, Mac Danzig and division champ, Frankie Edgar.
