UFC Fight Night 21: Fight Card

Tickets go on sale this week for the UFC Ultimate Fight Night 21 event which takes place on the 31st of March in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Headlining the card is an exciting lightweight contest as former No.1 contender Kenny Florian (12-4) looks to build on his recent win over Clay Guida when he welcomes former PRIDE lightweight champion Takanori Gomi (31-5 1nc) to the UFC.

Before that fans will get to see the winner of TUF 10, Roy Nelson (14-4) back in action against the up and coming heavyweight contender Stefan Struve (19-3) who has put together a three fight unbeaten run since losing to Junior Dos Santos in his UFC debut.

Two hard hitting veterans, Nate Quarry (18-3) and Jorge Rivera (17-7) also face off on the main card with both currently on a two fight win-streak.

Rounding off the televised portion of the card, another TUF winner Ross Pearson (12-3) will be hoping to continue the impressive form he showed against Aaron Riley at UFC 105, when he steps into the octagon with Germany’s Denis Siver (15-6) who went three fights without a loss in 2009.

There’s also some established fighters lurking in the prelims of this event, with fighters like Cole Miller, Yushin Okami and Gleison Tibau perhaps a little unfortunate not to find a spot on the main card.
