Nik Lentz vs. Charles Oliveira 2 booked for UFC Fight Night 50 on Sept. 5 in Connecticut

Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

Old score, new weight class.

Remember that illegal knee Charles Oliveira landed at UFC on Versus 4 back in June 2011?

Nik Lentz does.

Now, "The Carny" has a chance to do something about it, as he's been penciled in for a "Do Bronx" rematch at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 50 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1, which takes place on Sept. 5, 2014, inside Foxwoods Casino in Ledyard, Connecticut.

UFC announced the pairing on Wednesday night.

Lentz (25-6-2, 1 NC) was submitted by Oliveira their first time out; however, the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission overruled the finish based on instant replay, which showed the Brazilian's illegal knee to the dome that somehow snuck past referee Chip Snider.

The result was a "no contest."

A rematch seemed impossible after Oliveira (18-4, 1 NC) abandoned his post at 155 pound to try his luck at featherweight, but now that Lentz has joined him at the lower weight class, it was only a matter of time before they did the deed for a second time.

Both fighters were victorious in their most recent appearances.

UFC Fight Night 50 features the transplanted middleweight rematch between Gegard Mousasi vs. Ronaldo Souza in the main event of the evening, while Joe Lauzon is expected to make his Octagon return against Michael Chiesa in a fun lightweight scrap.
