Taisumov vs. Lentz Set for UFC 203

Currently sporting a four-fight winning streak that has seen him end each victory by knockout, lightweight up-and-comer Mairbek Taisumov will attempt to crack the top 15 when he battles Nik Lentz in a UFC 203 bout on September 10.

In the UFC 203 main event, which takes place at QUicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, hometown hero Stipe Miocic defends his heavyweight title against Alistair Overeem.

Winner of eight of his last nine, Taisumov is coming off knockouts of Marcin Bandel, Anthony Christodoulou, Alan Patrick and Damir Hadzovic. But he will be in for the toughest test of his career in Lentz, who made a successful return to 155 pounds in December when he defeated Danny Castillo.
