The UFC’s July 18 trip to Glasgow has a pair of new matchups, as Daniel Omielanczuk faces Konstantin Erokhin at heavyweight, while Jake Matthews meets Mickael Lebout in a lightweight scrap.
The Las Vegas-based promotion recently announced the fights. The UFC Fight Night bill takes place at the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow and in headlined by a middleweight confrontation pitting Michael Bisping against Thales Leites.
After knocking out Nandor Guelmino in his promotional debut, Omielanczuk has lost two straight, dropping unanimous decisions to Jared Rosholt at UFC Fight Night “Minotauro vs. Nelson” and Anthony Hamilton at UFC Fight Night “Gonzaga vs. Cro Cop 2.”
Erokhin lost a three-round verdict to Viktor Pesta in his initial Octagon foray at UFC on Fox 14 this past January. The 33-year-old Russian is 9-2 as a professional, with eight victories via knockout or technical knockout.
The 20-year-old Matthews suffered the first loss of his pro tenure on May 10, as he tapped to a James Vick guillotine choke at UFC Fight Night “Hunt vs. Miocic.” Matthews defeated Dashon Johnson and Vagner Rocha in his first two UFC appearances.
Lebout saw a six-fight winning streak come to an end on April 11 when he lost a decision to Sergio Moraes at UFC Fight Night in Poland. The 27-year-old Frenchman owns a 13-4-1 career mark, including six triumphs via submission.
