Lambert vs. Day Completes UFC 88 Card

Jason LambertJason Lambert will drop from the 205-pound light heavyweight division to the 185-pound middleweight division to take on Jason Day at UFC 88 on September 6th in Atlanta.

The bout, which was officially announced the UFC this week, completes the UFC 88 fight card.

“Day is a tough guy with good kickboxing and jiu jitsu,” said Lambert to “I think it’s going to be a great fight and I’m looking forward to getting back in the Octagon.”

“I think this is going to be a good fight for me,” Day told “It (the fight) was totally unexpected, but the more I train for it the more I like it. I haven’t been able to show much of my ability on the ground in the UFC yet and I plan on taking this fight there. I know Lambert is a ground and pound guy and so am I, so it has the potential to be an all-out war on the ground. I have been working hard on my ground for this fight and I want to show off my submission skills. He is not scared to stand with guys and if he tries to avoid my takedowns and keep it standing then I have no problem ending it on the feet.”
