OAM Draws Burns At UFC 231 In Toronto

After seeing their previous matchup scratched due to weight-cutting issues, lightweights Olivier Aubin-Mercier and Gilbert Burns will finally lock horns at UFC 231 on Dec. 8 from inside Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, per a recent announcement by UFC (originally reported by MMA Brasil)

Aubin-Mercier, 29, is coming off a tough loss opposite rising lightweight prospect Alexander Hernandez last month. It was a grueling fight for the Canadian grappler, especially considering Hernandez outworked him on the ground. The defeat snapped a four-fight win streak for Aubin-Mercier, which included finishes over UFC veterans Evan Dunham, Drew Dober, and Thibault Gouti. “Canadian Gangster” will look to end 2018 on a good note and improve his overall UFC record to 8-3 in the process.

Burns, 32, is coming off a crushing knockout defeat at the hands of streaking lightweight contender Dan Hooker back at UFC 226 this past July. While “Durinho” has amassed a respectable 6-3 UFC record with four impressive finishes along the way, the Brazilian submission specialist hasn’t quite lived up to the hype since making his debut four years ago. Burns has all the ingredients to get back into the win column and make his move back up the lightweight ladder, but he’ll have to start from scratch against one of the toughest guys in the division.

UFC 231 currently has no main event in place, but could very well feature a memorable homecoming for mixed martial arts (MMA) legend Georges St-Pierre.

‘Shoe Face’ Draws Theodorou At UFC Fight Night 137

Streaking middleweight contender Antonio Carlos Junior will look to win his sixth straight when he takes on Canadian grinder Elias Theodorou at UFC Fight Night 137 on Sept. 22 from inside Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil, according to MMA Fighting’s Guilherme Cruz who confirmed an initial report by Combate.

Remember, Carlos Junior was expected to fight middleweight knockout artist Derek Brunson at UFC 227 on Aug. 4 from Los Angeles before an eye injury knocked Brunson out of competition.

Carlos Junior, 28, has quickly turned into one of the most dangerous submission specialists in UFC today. During his current five-fight win streak, which includes a recent victory over veteran Tim Boetsch back in April, “Shoe Face” has recorded four submissions. His hands have developed nicely behind some natural punching power, but Carlos Junior will be out to prove yet again at UFC Sao Paulo that he’s the best grappler at 185 pounds.

Theodorou, 30, is coming off back-to-back wins over Trevor Smith and Dan Kelly, who is the last fighter to defeat Carlos Junior inside of the Octagon. While “Spartan” hasn’t finished many of his UFC wins he remains a dangerous out for anyone in the middleweight division. Throughout nine UFC appearances, Theodorou has utilized a strong wrestling game and trusted motor to walk away with seven wins.

UFC Fight Night 137 currently has no main event in place, but will feature a welterweight clash between Neil Magny and Brazilian finisher Alex Oliveira, as well as the anticipated return of light heavyweight veteran Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
