The UFC on FX 4 card is finally taking shape with two of the top featherweights now set to meet on June 22nd in New Jersey.
Originally believed to be one of the possible opponents for Aldo at the reshuffled UFC 147 card, it appears that Hatsu Hioki will now be facing Ricardo Lamas instead.
Hioki (26-4-2) is currently riding a 6-fight win streak, with two of those wins inside the UFC octagon. His unanimous decision victory over Bart Palaszewski was an impressive and dominant performance where he showcased his improved striking game in front of his fellow countrymen. The Japanese star will be looking to extend his winning streak heading into UFC on FX 4.
Lamas (11-2) was last seen submitting Cub Swanson at the inaugural UFC on FOX card. He is also riding a 2-fight win streak in the UFC and will be looking to edge his way closer to the upper echelon of the featherweight division.
UFC on FX 4 takes place in Revel Atlantic City in southern New Jersey on June 22, 2012.
