A new fight has been added to the UFC on FX 4 card, Matt “The Immortal” Brown (14-11) will take on Luis Ramos (19-7) welterweight bout in June.
The fight was announced by Matt Brown today on his Facebook and Twitter pages, originally various reports suggested that Ramos would be facing Matt Riddle at the event but he was unable to take the fight due to reasons unknown at this stage.
UFC on FX 4 will take place on June 22nd at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, NJ. The main card for the event will air on FX with Fuel TV expected to carry the prelims. The headlining bout on the night will be Clay Guida vs. Gray Maynard in a battle of highly ranked lightwweight contenders.
Matt Brown is currently riding a two fight winning streak having defeated Chris Cope at UFC 143 and most recently Stephen Thompson at UFC 145. Brown defeated Thompson via unanimous decision and put a damper on the hype surrounding the hot “Wonderboy” prospect. In 2010 Brown was on a bad slide losing three fights in a row against Ricardo Almeida, Chris Lytle, and Brian Foster. He was able to end the skid with a unanimous decision win over John Howard which probably saved his spot on the UFC roster.
This will be the second fight for Luis Ramos in the UFC after losing his debut bout against Erick Silva at UFC 134 in August 2011. Ramos was knocked out in the first round of the fight which is never a nice way to start out with a promotion. Prior to joining the UFC Luis had built up a three fight winning streak and will now look to bounce back to that winning form against Brown.
