UFC 166: Charles Oliveira Vs. Jeremy Larsen Added

Featherweights Charles Oliveira and Jeremy Larsen will meet this October at UFC 166, officials announced Tuesday.

The card goes down October 19 from Houston with a scheduled main event pitting UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez against Junior dos Santos.

Oliveira (16-4) has dropped two straight, including a loss to former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar earlier this year.

Larsen (8-4) is a veteran of The Ultimate Fighter, but was stopped by Lucas Martins last time out. He was originally set to face Matt Grice before Grice’s car accident.

Other fights that night include Daniel Cormier-Roy Nelson and Gilbert Melendez-Diego Sanchez.
