TUF Winner Barzola Faces Bochniak on Aug. 27

On Saturday, August 27, Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada will be the site for an intriguing featherweight bout, as Peru's Enrique Barzola makes his first start since winning The Ultimate Fighter Latin America against Kyle Bochniak.

Tickets for the UFC Fight Night event, which also features a featherweight showdown between Anthony Pettis and Charles Oliveira, and the return of Paige VanZant against Bec Rawlings go on sale on July 15.

Fighting out of Lima, Peru, the 27-year-old Barzola earned his spot on the UFC roster when he won the lightweight division of TUF LATAM 2 by defeating Horacio Gutierrez in November. Now he'll face hungry Bostonian Bochniak, who made a strong impression in a short notice decision loss to Charles Rosa in January, and who is eager to deliver a winning performance with a full training camp under his belt.
