Ortega-Dias Set For UFN 96

ufc fight night 96

Featherweights Brian Ortega and Hacran Dias will head to the Pacific Northwest and UFC Fight Night 96 later this year.

Set for October 1 from the Moda Center, the event marks just the second time the Octagon has made a stop in Portland.

Ortega (11-0) has claimed three finishes in his UFC career, with a fourth bout being overturned to a no-contest due to a failed drug test. The 25-year-old knocked out Clay Guida with a knee in June.

Dias (23-4-1) is an even 3-3 over six UFC appearances, but was defeated by Cub Swanson in his most recent outing. That snapped a two-fight win streak for the Brazilian.

Below is the current lineup:

Lightweight: Will Brooks vs. Alex Oliveira

Lightweight: Josh Burkman vs. Bobby Green

Flyweight: Louis Smolka vs. Sergio Pettis

Heavyweight: Walt Harris vs. Shamil Abdurakhimov

Middleweight: Nate Marquardt vs. Tamdan McCrory

Light Heavyweight: Luis Henrique da Silva vs. Joachim Christensen

Female Bantamweight: Kelly Faszholz vs. Ketlen Vieria

Featherweight: Hacran Dias vs. Brian Ortega
