Seven bouts added to UFC 208 card

From heavyweight to flyweight, Brooklyn will see it all at Barclays Center on Feb. 11, as the UFC 208 card continues to take shape, with seven bouts added to the lineup.

In the heavyweight division, Brazil’s Luis “KLB” Henrique seeks his third consecutive UFC win when he takes on Poland’s Marcin Tybura, who is coming off a highlight reel knockout of Viktor Pesta in August.

One of the top light heavyweights in the world, No. 3-ranked Glover Teixeira will return to the Octagon to take on Jared Cannonier, whose light heavyweight debut on Dec. 3 saw him earn Fight of the Night honors for his win over Ion Cutelaba.

Next it’s off to the welterweight division, where New York will be well represented in a pair of bouts, as Long Island’s Ryan LaFlare battles Roan Carneiro and Queens’ Randy “Rudeboy” Brown faces New Jersey banger George “The Silencer” Sullivan.

In an intriguing lightweight matchup, Islam Makhachev squares off with veteran Nik Lentz, and then it’s a double shot of flyweight action, as No. 5-ranked Wilson Reis meets Ulka Sasaki and No. 6-ranked Ian McCall gets a second chance to face Dublin’s Neil Seery.

In a previously announced bout, Holly Holm meets Germaine de Randamie in a five-round clash for the first UFC women’s featherweight title.
