James Vick vs. Paul Felder, Islam Makhachev vs. Francisco Trinaldo added to UFC 233
A pair of intriguing lightweight matchups have been added to UFC 233.
Vick (13-2) is looking to get back on track after losing to Justin Gaethje via knockout in his first UFC main event on Aug. 25. The loss snapped a four-fight winning streak. Felder (15-4), meanwhile, is coming off a loss at welterweight to Mike Perry in which he suffered a broken arm. Felder remains on a three-fight winning streak in lightweight bouts.
Makhachev (16-1) has quietly put together an impressive UFC run. His submission of Kajan Johnson in Calgary on July 28 was his fourth consecutive victory and lifted him to 5-1 in the UFC. The 40-year-old Trinaldo (23-6), meanwhile, is coming off a memorable TKO of Evan Dunham via knee to the body at UFC Sao Paulo, and is seeking his third win in four fights.
UFC 233 runs head-to-head in Southern California with Bellator’s heavyweight grand prix final, which will be held on the same night at the Forum in Inglewood.
