Lewis-Browne and Miller-Poirier head to Brooklyn

 

Brooklyn’s Barclays Center will be the place to be for UFC fans on Feb. 11, as a stacked lineup of fights got another jolt on Thursday with the addition of two sure to be explosive matchups.

In a clash of heavyweight strikers, No. 9-ranked Derrick “The Black Beast” Lewis will seek his sixth consecutive win when he battles seasoned veteran Travis “Hapa” Browne, who currently sits at No. 10 in the top 15 rankings.

Plus, always exciting lightweights Jim Miller and Dustin Poirier meet in the Octagon for the first time, with New Jersey’s Miller attempting to extend his three-fight winning streak and crash the top 15 with a victory over Poirier, who has won four of five bouts since returning to 155 pounds in 2015.

In a previously announced championship bout, Holly Holm meets Germaine de Randamie in a five-round clash for the first UFC women’s featherweight title.
