Herrig, Lamas on UFC 238 Chicago Card


UFC 238 Felice Herrig and Ricardo Lamas

Two of Chicago’s best fighters will be on the card for UFC 238 in Chicago on June 8. Felice Herrig (14-8, #12 Strawweight) looks to rebound against China’s Yao Xiaonan (9-1) in one of four female fights already booked for the event. Team Curran’s Herrig had her four-fight win streak snapped in a split-decision loss to Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 223, then lost to Michelle Waterson at UFC 229. A win against Xiaonan could vault her back into the top ten of the UFC strawweight division.

Ricardo Lamas (19-7, #11 Featherweight) will battle Boston’s Calvin Kattar (19-3, #15 Featherweight). Lamas is coming off an epic win over Northwest Indiana’s Darren “The Damage” Elkins. Lamas laid some brutal ground and pound in round three of that contest, finishing Elkins with a series of elbows and hammer fists. Lamas could also find himself back in the top ten of his division with a win over Kattar, who is coming off a first-round TKO of Chris Fishgold at UFC Fight Night 138.

Team Top Notch’s Lamas is also busy running UFC Gym Naperville, which has been in business for over a year.
