UFC Fight Night 28 lineup grows by two tilts

UFC Fight Night 28 lineup grows by two tilts

The UFC’s September 4 show in Belo Horizonte, Brazil can now boast thirteen bouts after a pair of match-ups were added to upcoming show. Though neither of the new UFC Fight Night 28 tilts is likely to turn a ton of heads based on the relative lack of name value involved, fans in the region will certainly be happy to see two more of their countrymen called into action with each getting a solid test to boot.

According to Globo and TATAME, lightweights Francisco Trinaldo-Piotr Hallman and welterweights Joao Zeferino-Kenny Robertson are the latest competitors to join the lineup.

The 13-2 Trinaldo is coming off back-to-back victories inside the Octagon with each featuring a submission finish. “Massaranduba” will welcome newcomer Hallman to the organization while also attempting to put an end to the Polish pugilist’s nine-fight winning streak. Hallman is 13-1 with all but one of his triumphs involving a stoppage.

Zeferino (13-5) will look to bounce back from a decision loss in his UFC unveiling and add to his nine wins by way of submission. Comparably, the 12-3 Robertson is in a similar position after falling to Sean Pierson last month despite having finished all but one of the foes he’s felled.

UFC Fight Night 28 is headlined by a bout between light heavyweights Glover Teixeira-Ryan Bader with other featured fights including Joseph Benavidez-Jussier Formiga and Ronaldo Souza-Yushin Okami.
