link Two very tough lightweights with wrestling pedigrees will match-up at UFC 123 in Detroit as Nik Lentz, coming off a win at UFC 118, takes on Xtreme Couture fighter Tyson Griffin.

The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the fight on Wednesday.

Seems pretty one-sided. Lets see if Lentz can succeed where Tibau failed; Smother Griffin to death.

Lentz wins like how he did against Winner.

I'm definitely pulling for Lentz in this one. He has the skill-set to give Griffin problems, but I'm not sure he's going to be able to replicate his performance against Winner. I have no idea what it is about him, but I've just thoroughly enjoyed watching Griffin get beat in his last two fights.

After watching Lentz vs Winner, I dont know how anyone would want to put on TV another Lentz fight. That last fight was brutal.
Now they give him Griffin?
Hmmm Griffin by lay and pray all the way!

The wrestling should cancel out here, Griffin has the stand up edge.
