UFC lightweights Aaron Riley and Joe Brammer have agreed to square off at UFC 114 in Las Vegas, according to MMAjunkie, and will look to rebound from recent losses on the preliminary card of the May 29 event.
Riley (28-12-1) returned to the UFC in late-2008 with a victory over Jorge Gurgel, before suffering a controversial TKO loss to Shane Nelson last March that he quickly avenged with a unanimous decision over Nelson in August. In his most-recent fight in November, Riley was stopped in the second round due to cuts by The Ultimate Fighter 9 winner Ross Pearson.
Brammer (7-1-1) earned five of his seven victories by submission while competing exclusively in Iowa before making his UFC debut in December, when he suffered a first-round submission to Mark Bocek for his first career defeat.
UFC 114 is headlined by a grudge match between rival TUF 10 coaches Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans, and is also expected to include Forrest Griffin vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Amir Sadollah vs. Dong Hyun Kim.
