Lance Benoist vs. Bobby Voelker added to June UFC event in Albuquerque

Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE

A second bout has been added to the UFC event in Albuquerque on June 7th.

The UFC didn't take long to add another bout to the June event in Albuquerque earlier today. The promotion will travel to Albuquerque, NM on June 7th to stage a Fight Night event in Tingley Coliseum. In addition to a main event lightweight bout between former champ Ben Henderson and Rustam Khabilov, a welterweight bout is now confirmed as well. The UFC News twitter account has the info:


Benoist (6-2) picked up a win in his UFC debut over Matt Riddle back in 2011, but has lost his last two bouts to Seth Baczynski and Sean Pierson. He hasn't fought in 17 months after suffering a broken leg while preparing for a bout last May.

Voelker (24-11) is 0-3 since his move over from Strikeforce. His most recent loss came at the hands of William Macario by unanimous decision at UFC 168 in December.

The bout will most likely take place on the preliminary portion of the event.
