UFC Fight Night adds Nik Lentz vs Manny Gamburyan to May 10 card in Cincinnati

Nik Lentz - Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Cincinnati's first Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) card in seven years now has six fights.

U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio, which will play host to a UFC Fight Night event on May 10, 2014, which is already beginning to take shape, with four mixed martial arts (MMA) matches announced in the past 24 hours (details on the other three right here).

The latest comes in the form of a featherweight tilt announced by Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) officials via Twitter on Thursday, Manny Gamburyan vs. Nik Lentz. With both men coming off a loss, a win will go a long way in moving them back up the rankings toward divisional kingpin Jose Aldo.

Lentz (24-6) is an American Top Team (ATT) product who took Chad Mendes to the limit in a decision loss at UFC on FOX 9. Prior to the defeat, "The Carny" had won three straight and was in the conversation for who Aldo's next challenger would be.

The former lightweight will have his hands full when he takes on "The Anvil."

Gamburyan (13-8) was most recently in action against Dennis Siver at UFC 168. He lost via decision, ending a two-fight winning streak of his own. The Glendale Fighting Club member is known for being streaky, putting together a good period of results before dropping two or three. This ultimately led to his departure from ZUFFA in 2009, but he ended up rejoining UFC after a stint in World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC).

Who wins this pairing come May 10?
