UFC 141 will feature a main event pitting former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar against ex-Strikeforce champ Alistair Overeem. It is unknown where the Ramos-Riddle bout will take place, but a Spike TV prelim special and Facebook streaming are expected for the undercard.
Ramos, a former Shooto welterweight champion, dropped his UFC debut after suffering a first round knockout loss to Erick Silva.
“I’m training hard since I lost,” said Ramos, in an interview with Tatame. “I’ll go for the knockout or the submission all the time. It’s my career on the line.”
Riddle (5-3) suffered a decision loss to Lance Benoist earlier this year, his second consecutive loss inside the Octagon. Riddle has spent his entire professional career in the UFC.
Ramos knows the kind of pressure that will be placed on both himself and Riddle, saying, “Whoever loses will leave the UFC. He’s under pressure, so am I.”
