Emmerson/Lentz completes UFN 21

In a bout first reported by MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), Rob Emerson (9-8 MMA, 3-2-1 UFC) meets Nik Lentz (17-3-2 MMA, 1-0-1 UFC) on the UFC Fight Night 21 preliminary card.

The UFC today announced the matchup, bringing the total number of fights on the card to 11.

Featuring a lightweight matchup between perennial contender Kenny Florian and Japanese import Takanori Gomi, UFC Fight Night 21 takes place March 31 at Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte, N.C. The main card airs live on Spike TV and serves as the lead-in for "The Ultimate Fighter 11" season debut.

Lentz was behind on the scorecards in his most recent octagon appearance against Thiago Tavares at UFC Fight Night 20, but a deduction to the Brazilian for an inadvertent groin kick in the final frame left the fight as a majority draw. It was a disappointing result for Lentz, a product of the Minnesota Martial Arts Academy, as he had earned seven-straight win over a near-two-year period since his most recent blemish, which, ironically enough, was a draw against WEC veteran Kyle Jensen.

Lentz made a successful octagon debut this past September at UFC 103, where he defeated Rafaello Oliveira by decision.

Emerson, meanwhile, got back on the winning track earlier this month when he defeated "The Ultimate Fighter 8" finalist Phillipe Nover at UFC 109.

A cast member of "The Ultimate Fighter 5," Emerson fell short against Kurt Pellegrino and Rafael dos Anjos at UFC Fight Night 17 and UFC 103, respectively, and vowed to re-tool his training regimen prior to his meeting with Nover. To that end, Emerson migrated to Hilo, Hawaii, to train with B.J. Penn in addition to his work in Huntington Beach, Calif., and said the experience helped him harness the mental aspects of fighting.

The full UFC Fight Night 21 lineup now includes:

Kenny Florian vs. Takanori Gomi
Roy Nelson vs. Stefan Struve
Nate Quarry vs. Jorge Rivera
Ross Pearson vs. Dennis Siver
Rafaello Oliveira vs. Andre Winner
Ronys Torres vs. Jacob Volkmann
Rob Emerson vs. Nik Lentz
Gleison Tibau vs. Caol Uno
Lucio Linhares vs. Yushin Okami
Gerald Harris vs. Mario Miranda
Charlie Brenneman vs. Jason High

Saint Leg-Kicker returns! Too bad he didn't make the main. UFN 21 is going to be very, very good.

The main card is very tasty. There is also some interesting match-ups on the preliminary as well. The match-up I like the least is Gleison Tibau vs. Caol Uno.

I'm different from everybody else I guess, for I'd much rather see most of the fights on the undercard. I've been an Oliveira fan for a long time, I like Torres and Volkmann, Miranda and especially high. Granted, I think the fight of the night will probably be Quarry/Rivera, but I'm just not a fan of anybody otherthan Florian on the maincard.

Praise him!

Is Ken Flo and Gomi the main event or is that yet to be filled yet?

You speak the truth sir.

It's too bad Frank Mir isn't aware that Saint Leg Kicker has already been responsible for the "octagon related death" of each and every opponent unfortunate enough to step into the cage with him. Then again, Mir's ignorance shouldn't really come as a surprise. Only a hand full of the faithful here at MMA Forum are aware that Rob Emerson wields supreme control over the space/time continuum. Following the brutal decimation of the mortals that the UFC offers up as a sacrifice to the Great One in return for his continued blessing he travels back in time to the start of the match to demonstrate his true benevolence by staging a mock performance and allowing his opponents to live.

A win/loss record is meaningless to a deity.

Do not analyze your opponent's cup size (before a fight) because it can be intimidating.
