Jose Aldo vs. Ricardo Lamas rematch co-headlines UFC on FOX 26; Perry-Ponzinibbio, Mein-Silva

Postby moose84 » Oct 13. 2017, 13:52

A featherweight rematch from a past title fight has been booked as the co-main event for the UFC’s return to Winnipeg in December.

Former featherweight champ Jose Aldo (26-3 MMA, 8-2 UFC) will take on former title challenger Ricardo Lamas (18-5 MMA, 9-3 UFC) in the UFC on FOX 26 co-feature, UFC President Dana White today told Canada’s TSN. The two first fought for then-champ Aldo’s title at UFC 169 in February 2014, where Aldo won a unanimous decision.

In addition to that matchup, UFC on FOX 26 has added a pair of welterweight bouts between Mike Perry (11-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) and Santiago Ponzinibbio (25-3 MMA, 7-2 UFC) and Jordan Mein (29-12 MMA, 3-4 UFC) vs. Erick Silva (19-8 MMA, 7-7 UFC).

UFC on FOX 26 takes place Dec. 16 at MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The main card airs on FOX following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Aldo had a lengthy run as featherweight champ with seven defenses of the belt after moving over as the WEC’s champion. The sixth of those defenses came against Lamas. But in December 2015, Conor McGregor knocked him out in 13 seconds to take the title.

Seven months later, Aldo fought for the interim featherweight belt since McGregor was fighting at welterweight in a pair of fights against Nate Diaz, and he took a decision from Frankie Edgar in a rematch of their UFC 156 fight. He later was promoted back to undisputed champ, but in his first defense, against Max Holloway, he was stopped with a third-round TKO.

Lamas has gone 5-2 since his loss to Aldo. His losses came to two-time title challenger Chad Mendes and Holloway, the latter coming at UFC 199 in June 2016. But since the Holloway loss, he has back-to-back stoppage wins. He submitted Charles Oliveira nearly a year ago and won a $50,000 bonus, and in July, he stopped Jason Knight with a first-round TKO at UFC 214.

Perry has won back-to-back performance bonuses for knockouts of Jake Ellenberger in April and short-notice opponent Alex Reyes at UFC Fight Night 117 in September. Those wins got him back on track following the first loss of his pro career, a decision upset setback against Alan Jouban this past December.

Ponzinibbio has been on a tear since a “Fight of the Night” loss to Lorenz Larkin in June 2015. Since then, he has five straight wins. Most recently, he upset Gunnar Nelson in the UFC Fight Night 113 main event in July in Scotland. The knockout, in just 82 seconds, got him a fight-night bonus and was his third stoppage win on his current run.

Mein retired after a TKO loss to Thiago Alves at UFC 183 in January 2015. Nearly two years later, he returned, but dropped a decision to Emil Meek at UFC 206 this past December. In July, he suffered his third straight setback when he was outpointed by Belal Muhammad at UFC 213 in Las Vegas.

Silva needs to get back on track, as well. The Brazilian has lost three of his past four fights. In June in Rio de Janeiro, he was knocked out by Yancy Medeiros in the second round. That sent him back to the loss column after a bonus-winning submission of Luan Chagas in September 2016. That fight had been a bounce-back for him after consecutive losses to Neil Magny and Nordine Taleb, which was the first time he had lost two straight fights.
