UFC officials are apparently not done stacking the year-end event titled “UFC 141: Lesnar vs. Overeem”. The latest addition to the card comes in the form of a lightweight clash between Ramsey Nijem and Anthony Njokuani.
UFC 141 is set to take place on Dec. 30 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The end-of-year pay-per-view event will feature a five-round non-title fight between former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and newly signed heavyweight stand-out Alistair Overeem.
Nijem is coming off of his first post Ultimate Fighter victory in a bout against Danny Downes he took via unanimous decision at this past month’s UFC 137. The runner up of The Ultimate Fighter Season 13, his first official outing in the UFC was a failure against show winner Tony Ferguson.
Njokuani is one of many WEC imports into the UFC’s lightweight division, the striking based fighter made his UFC debut with a very highly contested bout against Edson Barboza at UFC 128. He ended up losing the fight but recently bounced back with a crushing one sided decision victory over Andre Winner at UFC 132.
