Ramos, Riddle Meet At UFC 141 In Vegas

Matt Riddle

Riddle vs. Ramos official for December

A welterweight match up between Matt Riddle and Luis Ramos is official for UFC 141 in December

UFC officials confirmed the match up today.

Riddle, an eight-fight UFC veteran, has spent his entire career with promotion since debuting as a professional at “The Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale” with a win over Dante Rivera. However, the likable fighter has struggled as of late, losing his last two contests to Sean Pierson and Lance Benoist at UFC 124 and UFC Fight Night 25, respectively.

Meanwhile, Ramos also is coming off a disappointing loss, as he was devastated in his debut with the promotion at UFC 134. At that event, a three-fight winning streak came to an end against Erick Silva on the event’s preliminary card.

UFC 141 is set for December 30 in Las Vegas, Nevada and features a heavyweight tilt between former Strikeforce champion Alistair Overeem and former UFC champion Brock Lesnar.
