UFC 118: Osipczak vs. Soto, Winner vs. Lentz Set for August 28 in Boston

Welterweights Greg Soto and Nick Osipczak will look to bounce back from their first career losses when they square off at UFC 118, while The Ultimate Fighter 9 runner-up Andre Winner will face fellow lightweight Nik Lentz on the August 28 card in Boston.

Soto (7-1) lost his UFC debut in March to Matt Riddle after being disqualified for an illegal kick, while Osipcak (5-1), a castmember on TUF 9, began his UFC career with back-to-back wins over Frank Lester and Riddle, before dropping a split decision to Rick Story at UFC 112 last month.

After losing to Ross Pearson in the finals of TUF 9, Winner (11-3) has rebounded with wins over Roli Delgado in November and Rafaello Oliveira in March. Lentz (18-3-1) remained unbeaten in the UFC with a unanimous decision over Rob Emerson at UFC Fight Night 21, which followed a victory over Oliveira and draw against Thiago Tavares.

UFC 118 is headlined by lightweight champ Frankie Edgar’s first title defense vs. former title-holder BJ Penn, while the card also features a matchup between lightweight contenders Kenny Florian and Gray Maynard as well as Randy Couture vs. James Toney.
