Lamas Gets Oliveira in Mexico City

After an injury suffered by BJ Penn forced his October 15 bout in Manila to be postponed, featherweight contender Ricardo Lamas will make a quick change of course to face Charles Oliveira in a UFC Fight Night bout in Mexico City on November 5.

In the UFC Fight Night main event at Arena Ciudad de Mexico, Tony Ferguson battles former lightweight champion  Rafael Dos Anjos.

Winner of three of his last five, the No. 4-ranked Lamas was ready to take on Hall of Famer Penn this weekend and continue his move up the 145-pound ladder, but instead, he will now fight three weeks later against Brazil's Oliveira, who is 5-2 in his last seven, a stretch that includes four post-fight bonuses.
