    SIR

    UFC on ESPN+ 9 takes place May 18 at Blue Cross Arena at the Rochester Community War Memorial. The event streams on ESPN+.

    In a featured bout, lightweights
    Charles Oliveira (26-8 MMA, 14-8 UFC) and Nik Lentz (30-9-1 MMA, 14-6-1 UFC) will face off a third time in a rivalry that stretches over eight years and two fights. Oliveira is on a tear that includes four consecutive submission victories, while Lentz has won his past two. The last time they met, in 2015, Oliveira got the third-round tap.

    Not sure why we need to see this pairing for a third time. Plenty of new/fresh matchups for both guys. I know that he has folded when he has faced top flight competition, but Oliveira should be facing a top 15 opponent and give Lentz another legit opponent, just not someone he has already faced twice before.

    The trilogy we all needed

    All we need now is Jacare vs Camozzi 3

    Strange fight to add.

    Both fights Da Bronx proved he was the better fighter.

    I didn't think we needed a trilogy fight for this.

    I think they should also have this be a 3 fall contest.

    Hopefully one will pull out. The last two fights were fun but no way do we need a 3rd fight.

    Lol Oliveira is on the tour of beating up fringe contenders of yesteryear. Fuck that guy, I hope he gets ktfo. Gets fucked up anytime he fights someone below the age of 35.

    Sounds like something they ripped off from the movie Slapshot.
