Lausa to Represent the Philippines in October debut

Getting the opportunity to make his UFC debut in his home country of the Philippines, Iloilo's Jenel Lausa will put it all on the line in Manila on October 15 when he faces China's Yao Zhikui in a UFC Fight Night flyweight bout at the Mall of Asia Arena.

In the main event, UFC Hall of Famer BJ Penn returns for a five-round featherweight bout against Ricardo Lamas.

A pro since 2011, the 28-year-old Lausa is showing the best form of his career, winning four in a row leading up to October's bout. Also 7-0 as a pro boxer, Lausa will need to have all his tools sharpened for his bout against "The Conqueror, who won his last bout in the Philippines over Nolan Ticman in May of 2015.
