After announcing Robbie Lawler vs. Donald Cerrone and Thiago Alves vs. Al Iaquinta, a third fight has been added to UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Native New Yorker and teammate to Al Iaquinta, light heavyweight Gian Villante will face TUF Brazil veteran Marcos Rogerio de Lima.
De Lima, who holds a 3-1 record under the UFC banner, has proven to be a natural finisher with 10 knockouts, 3 submissions, and only 1 decision in his fourteen victories. Villante has nine knockouts to his name as well, including three inside the Octagon.
This has all the makings of a stand-up war, and with the NYC crowd sure to be heavily in favor of Villante, expect there to be a fantastic atmosphere for this one.
