Jenel Lausa to face Eric Shelton at UFC Sydney

Jenel Lausa UFC Sydney

Filipino UFC flyweight Jenel Lausa will head to Sydney, Australia for his next fight.

Lausa (7-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) goes Down Under once again, this time to face American Eric Shelton (10-4 MMA, 0-2 UFC) at UFC Sydney this November 19, 2017. That’s according to Lausa, who confirmed the news to Dojo Drifter.

After his fight with undefeated prospect Naoki Inoue at UFC Japan got cancelled a week before the fight due to the latter’s injury, Lausa will get the chance to return to the winner’s circle as he takes on the Illinois-native.

Shelton, on the other hand, aims to secure his first Octagon victory after going 10-2 in the US regional scene. “Showtime” Shelton has been on the receiving end of back-to-back split decision defeats to Alexandre Pantoja and most recently, to Jarred Brooks.

For the card’s main event, Marcin Tybura will take on the returning Mark Hunt inside the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, Australia.

How the UFC Sydney card is looking so far:

Marcin Tybura vs Mark Hunt
Joanne Calderwood vs Bec Rawlings
Tai Tuivasa vs Rashad Coulter
Ryan Benoit vs Ashkan Mokhtarian
Alexander Volkanovski vs Jeremy Kennedy
Alex Chambers vs Nadia Kaseem
Elias Theodorou vs Daniel Kelly
Jenel Lausa vs Eric Shelton

UPDATE: UFC officials have confirmed this bout with Dojo Drifter.
