Lentz Returns to 155 to Face Castillo in Dec.

After a six-fight run at 145 pounds, Nik Lentz will make a move back to the lightweight division on Saturday, December 19 to take on Danny "Last Call" Castillo in UFC Fight Night action at Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.

In the FOX-televised card’s main event, Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone challenges for a UFC title for the first time when he battles lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos in a highly anticipated rematch, and in the co-feature, former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos battles Alistair Overeem.

Despite coming up short in his most recent bout against Charles Oliveira in May, Lentz' effort in their rematch earned him his third Fight of the Night bonus as a member of the UFC roster. But now he's eager to test the waters at 155 pounds once more to build on the 5-2-1, 1 NC record he built in the Octagon from 2009 to 2012. Hoping to snap a three-fight cold spell that included two close split decision losses to Tony Ferguson and Jim Miller, Sacramento's Castillo plans on finishing 2015 with a big win.
