Ryan LaFlare vs. Alex Oliveira, Two Other Contests Set for UFC on Fox 25

By Tristen Critchfield May 26, 2017

The UFC on Fox 25 lineup continues to grow with the addition of three new bouts, including a welterweight showdown between Ryan LaFlare and Alex Oliveira.

Additionally, Rafael Natal will square off against Alessio Di Chirico in a middleweight clash, while Lyman Good will lock horns with Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos at welterweight. Newsday initially confirmed the matchups with the Las Vegas-based promotion on Thursday.

UFC on Fox 25 takes place at Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, N.Y., on July 22 and is headlined by a middleweight tilt pitting Chris Weidman against Kelvin Gastelum.

LaFlare, 33, has been victorious in six of his seven Octagon appearances, including a decision triumph against Roan Carneiro in his most recent outing at UFC 208. Oliveira is unbeaten in his last four fights and is coming off a second-round submission of Tim Means at UFC Fight Night 106.

Good hasn’t competed since his promotional debut in July 2015, when he knocked out Andrew Craig in the second round at UFC Fight Night 71. Dos Santos enters the matchup with Good on the strength of back-to-back wins over Keita Nakamura and Omari Akhmedov.

Natal will look to snap a two-bout skid after falling to Tim Boetsch at UFC 205 and Robert Whittaker at UFC 197. Di Chirico is 1-2 in the Octagon and most recently was submitted by Eric Spicely in the opening stanza at UFC on Fox 23.
