‘Korean Zombie’ vs. Ricardo Lamas, Aljamain Sterling vs. Renan Barao Booked for UFC 214

By Tristen Critchfield May 24, 2017

The UFC 214 lineup is beginning to take shape behind its headliner, as the Las Vegas-based promotion on Wednesday announced six bouts for the July 29 event.

Most notably, Chan Sung Jung will meet Ricardo Lamas in a featherweight clash, while Renan Barao will return to 135 pounds to face Aljamain Sterling. Additionally, four other contests were revealed for UFC 214: Kailin Curran vs. Aleksandra Albu at strawweight; Joshua Burkman vs. Drew Dober at lightweight; Dmitri Smoliakov vs. Adam Wieczorek at heavyweight and Eric Shelton vs. Jarred Brooks at flyweight.

UFC 214 takes place at the Honda Center in Anaheim and is headlined by a light heavyweight championship rematch between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones. The evening’s main card airs on pay-per-view.

“The Korean Zombie” returned to the Octagon after nearly four years away at UFC Fight Night 104, where he scored a first-round knockout victory over Dennis Bermudez. Lamas split a pair of bouts in 2016, dropping a unanimous verdict against Max Holloway at UFC 199 before submitting Charles Oliveira at UFC Fight Night 98 this past November.

Barao, a former UFC bantamweight champion, will return to 135 pounds after going 1-1 at featherweight in 2016. Sterling, meanwhile, snapped a two-fight skid with a unanimous decision triumph against Augusto Mendes at UFC on Fox 24 in April.
