Oklahoma State wrestler, Johny Hendricks fills in on short notice to meet Anthony Waldburger on the preliminary card. UFC Fight Night 24 takes place on March 26th at the Key Arena in Seattle, Washington.

Johny Hendricks enters UFC Fight Night 24 coming off a loss for the first time in his professional career. At the Ultimate Fighter Season 12 Finale, he lost a unanimous decision to fellow star prospect, Rick Story. Previous to the Story loss, Hendricks was 4-0 in the UFC, including victories over TJ Grant, Amir Sadollah, and Charlie Brenneman.

Anthony Waldburger earned a semi-upset unanimous decision victory over David Mitchell in September of last year. The win was his fourth in a row, including victories over Pat Healy and Shannon Ritch. Waldburger’s last loss came in June of 2008, suffering a TKO loss to former UFC roster member, Ricardo Funch.

Nik Lentz

– 20-3-2 MMA/ 4-0-1 UFC record

——————————————————————————-

A lightweight bout between two wrestling standouts has been added to UFC Fight Night 24. Nik Lentz and Waylon Lowe have agreed to meet eachother on the preliminary card portion of the card. UFC Fight Night 24 takes place on March 26th at the Key Arena in Seattle, Washington. A light heavyweight fight between Tito Ortiz and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira serves as the main event for the evening.

Nik Lentz returns to action for the first time, since winning a highly-controversial split decision over Tyson Griffin at UFC 123. The win was his fourth inside the octagon, with his only minor hiccup being a draw against Thiago Tavares. Lentz also holds victories over Rob Emerson, Rafaello Oliveira, and a less-than-inspiring win over UK fighter, Andre Winner.

Since being the victim of a monsterous knee to the body form Melvin Guillard, Waylon Lowe has found his stride inside the cage, winning his last two fights. Last month, Lowe put together his most impressive performance to date with a dominant unanimous decision victory over Brazillian submission ace, Willamy Friere.
