Two Explosive Matchups Heading to LA

Larkin vs. Brunson and Trujillo vs. Green set for UFC 176 on August 2...
The Summer of 2014 will get a lot hotter on Saturday, August 2, as two of the best matchups of the year will land on the UFC 176 card at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles.

In the middleweight division, rising stars Lorenz Larkin and Derek Brunson will meet in a matchup of former Strikeforce standouts, and at 155 pounds, Abel "Killa" Trujillo squares off with Bobby "King' Green.

Riverside's Larkin will get a southern California home game for the first time since February of 2011, as he looks to snap a two-fight skid against Brunson, who has won two of his last three since coming to the UFC.

On the lightweight side of the ledger, with Trujillo, Myles Jury and Francisco Trevino all dealing with injuries, the trio were forced out of the June 28 card in San Antonio, TX, scrapping the Trujillo vs. Jury bout, with Octagon newcomer Johnny Case stepping in for Trevino against Joe Ellenberger.

Now Trujillo will return to action for the first time since his Fight of the Night knockout of Jamie Varner in February to put his three-fight unbeaten run on the line against Fontana's Green, whose seven-fight winning streak includes UFC wins over Pat Healy, James Krause, and Jacob Volkmann.
