Less than two weeks removed from their bouts at UFC on Versus 4, lightweights Joe Lauzon and Charles Oliveira are expected to square off on the UFC 138 fight card on November 19 in San Jose, California, according to Tatame.
Oliveira (14-1) followed up the first loss of his career to Jim Miller in December with a no contest against Nik Lentz on June 26 from an illegal knee that still earned “Fight of the Night” honors, while Lauzon (20-6) earned the “Submission of the Night” with a first-round kimura of Curt Warburton.
A rematch between Oliveira and Lentz was planned and could still take place in the future, but Lentz is sidelined indefinitely after undergoing surgery for injuries from the knee.
