An interesting featherweight bout has been confirmed by the UFC, as Hatsu Hioki will take on Ricardo Lamas. The fight will take place June 22 from Atlantic City at UFC on FX 4.
Hioki is considered by many to be the No. 2 featherweight in the world, but he has decided not to accept a title shot with Jose Aldo. Instead, the Japanese superstar feels like he needs at least one more match before taking on “Scarface.”
Of course, all of that could be wiped away if Hioki is stopped by Lamas in June. Lamas has won both of his UFC bouts at the weight class, topping Matt Grice and Cub Swanson.
UFC on FX 4 will feature a lightweight main event between Clay Guida and Gray Maynard. This is the first UFC card to be held in Atlantic City in seven years.
