Wednesday Night Fight Wrap Up

After a wild day of fight shuffling and announcements, two more bouts are on tap for upcoming events in Oklahoma and Connecticut.

On August 23 in Tulsa, Ernest Chavez has been forced out of his bout with Mirsad Bektic due to injury, and highly-touted featherweight prospect Max Holloway has stepped up to face Bektic on the UFC Fight Night card.

In featherweight action, the rematch between top 15 contenders Nik Lentz and Charles Oliveira has landed at Foxwoods in Connecticut on September 5. The two battled to a no contest three years ago in a bout that earned Fight of the Night honors.
