Two lightweights looking to stay in the organization will meet in a late addition to the UFC 148 card on July 7th. Yoislandy Izquierdo will face off with Rafaello Oliveira. Izquierdo's management team, Mundus Sports Management, tweeted about the fight recently:
Oliveira (14-5) is on his second stint in the UFC, but has dropped two bouts in a row to Gleison Tibau at UFC 130 and Yves Edwards at UFC on Versus 6. Izquierdo (6-1) dropped his only bout in the organization thus far to Reza Madadi by submission at UFC on Fuel 2 in April.
The fight will take place on the preliminary card.
