UFC 164: Brunson vs. Romero, Hamman vs. Cedenblad Set

The August 31st, UFC 164 card in Milwaukee, Wisconsin is nearing completion, as two more middleweight tilts have been added to the card. According to a report from MMA, Derek Brunson will fight Yoel Romero and Jared Hamman will thrown down with Magnus Cedenblad at the event.

Brunson (10-2) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Chris Leben at UFC 155 in December, after he was knocked out by Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza last August when he was still with Strikeforce. The former collegiate wrestler has gone 3-2 in his last five bouts.

Romero (5-1) scored a quick KO via a flying knee and punches over Clifford Starks in his Octagon debut, which took place at UFC on FOX 7 in April. Before that, the “Soldier of God” was knocked out by Rafael Cavalcante at a Strikeforce event in 2011. The former Olympian and decorated Cuban wrestler turned pro in 2009.

Hamman (13-5) will be looking to end a two fight losing skid, as “The Messenger” is coming off stoppage losses to Costa Philippou and most recently Michael Kuiper. Prior to the defeats Hamman stopped C.B. Dollaway at a UFC Live card in 2011.

Cedenblad (10-4), meanwhile, will be competing for the first time since April, 2012, when he was submitted by Francis Carmont at UFC on FUEL TV 2. The bout marked the Swedish fighter’s Octagon debut.

UFC 164 will be hosted by Milwaukee’s Bradley Center and will feature lightweight champ Benson Henderson taking on TJ Grant in the main event.
