A featherweight fracas has been added to the UFC on Fox 4: "Stann vs. Lombard" event on Aug. 4, 2012, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, as the struggling Manny Gamburyan will take on Michihiro Omigawa.
MMAFighting.com brought word of the pending bout last night.
Gamburyan is likely on his last legs with the world's largest fight promotion, as he's lost both of his two fights since rejoining the UFC. Actually, dating back to his previous run with the promotion, "The Anvil" has won inside the Octagon in four fights. That's an impressive run of futility.
He'll try to turn the tide against Omigawa, who has struggled nearly as bad losing three of his last four. There's a widely panned decision in there that didn't go his way but a loss is a loss is a loss. So essentially, this is a loser leaves town match.
UFC on FOX 4 will feature the recently announced middleweight number one contender showdown pitting Hector Lombard vs. Brian Stann. Ryan Bader vs. Lyoto Machida, Terry Etim vs. Joe Lauzon, and Matt Mitrione vs. Rob Broughton are also scheduled for the "City of Angels."
