Lentz-Oliveira, Grant-Riddle slated for UFC Live 4

On Wednesday, the UFC announced a pair of bouts for their upcoming UFC Live 4 card. Lightweights Nik Lentz and Charles Oliveira will square off, and welterweights T.J. Grant and Matt Riddle will also fight on the card.

UFC Live 4 takes place June 26 at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh. The main card will air live on the Versus network.

It might shock some people that Lentz is now 5-0-1 in the UFC. The former University of Minnesota wrestler made his promotional debut with a decision victory over Rafaello Oliveira at UFC 103. His biggest win came when he upset Tyson Griffin via split decision at UFC 123.

“do Bronx” burst onto the UFC scene with a 41-second submission of Darren Elkins. He returned a month later and showed off his submission prowess once again with a rear-naked choke victory over TUF champion Efrain Escudero. In his last fight, he tasted defeat for the first time, when Jim Miller forced him to submit to a kneebar.

Grant has alternated wins and losses since making his UFC debut in 2009. He holds victories over Ryo Chonan, Kevin Burns and Julio Paulino.

Riddle competed on the seventh season of the UFC’s reality show without any professional experience. He won his first three fights in the promotion, and his record currently sits at 5-2.

Headlining UFC Live 4 is the welterweight return of Nate Marquart. The former middleweight will make the drop against Anthony Johnson.
