It’s remarkable how quickly the UFC Fight Night “Cyborg vs. Lansberg” card has come together this week. After a slew of fights were announced in the past two days, Ultimate Fighting Championship officials continue to crank out matchup after matchup.
On Thursday, the UFC Brasil’s official Twitter account revealed that welterweight Shinsho Anzai will take on Luan Chagas and Vicente Luque will oppose Hector Urbina, also at 170 pounds. If that wasn’t enough, a pair of lightweight battles have also been announced: Michel Prazeres will collide with Gilbert Burns and Gregor Gillespie will take on Joaquim Silva.
The matchups bolster the UFC Fight Night 95 card, which will be headlined by a women’s 140-pound battle between Cristiane Justino and Lina Lansberg. The event will take place inside the Nilson Nelson Gymnasium and will be televised live on both UFC Fight Pass and Fox Sports 1 on Sep. 24.
It was also revealed on Thursday that heavyweights Roy Nelson will lock horns with Antonio Silva in a pivotal matchup of veterans in desperate need of victory.
Also slated for the card, former UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao will collide with Phillipe Nover in a featherweight bout. A flyweight bout between Jussier Formiga and Dustin Ortiz has been added to the lineup as well, as is a lightweight clash between Paul Felder and Francisco Trinaldo. Welterweights Erick Silva and Brandon Thatch will square off and Michinori Tanaka will take on Rani Yahya in a bantamweight encounter.
Renato Moicano will oppose Mike de la Torre at 145 pounds and welterweight skirmish featuring Alan Patrick Silva Alves and Steven Ray is also scheduled for the event.
