By Tristen Critchfield Feb 24, 2021


Maurice Greene will meet Marcos Rogerio de Lima in a heavyweight scrap at an Ultimate Fighting Championship event on May 8.

MMAjunkie.com was first to report the pairing. The card includes a women’s bantamweight bout between Holly Holm and Julianna Pena and a welterweight clash pitting Donald Cerrone against Diego Sanchez. A location has not been formally announced.

Greene has lost three of his last four promotional outings. Most recently, the 34-year-old Jackson-Wink MMA representative suffered a second-round TKO defeat to Greg Hardy at UFC Fight Night 181 last October.

De Lima has alternated wins and losses in his last 10 UFC appearances dating back to December 2014. The 35-year-old Brazilian went 1-1 in 2020, earning a first-round TKO against Ben Sosolli at UFC Fight Night 168 before being submitted by Alexander Romanov at UFC on ESPN 17.
