Report: Former Bellator champ Will Brooks to return to the Octagon at UFC 216
Tom Taylor - July 25, 2017
UFC 216, which is schedule for October 7 inside Las Vegas, Nevada’s T-Mobile Arena, is reported to have grown by one interesting lightweight matchup. This matchup will pit former Bellator lightweight champion Will Brooks against Nik Lentz. This news comes from MMAJunkie.com. Though Brooks stood out as one of the finest lightweights in the world at the height of his Bellator reign, his UFC career has been undeniably disappointing. After debuting with a fairly competitive decision win over Ross Pearson, he was pummelled into unconsciousness by third-round punches dealt by an overweight Alex “Cowboy” Oliveira. From there, things went from bad to worse, as he was tapped out by a standing rear-naked choke from former featherweight contender Charles “Do Bronx” Oliveira. Despite his recent skid, it appears Brooks will be given an another shot against Lentz.
