Fighting in arguably the UFC's strongest division, lightweight Nik Lentz (21-3-2 MMA, 5-0-1 UFC) has yet to experience defeat since entering the organization 18 months ago.

Over that span, Lentz has taken on all challengers and beaten the likes of Tyson Griffin, Andre Winner, Rob Emerson and, most recently, Waylon Lowe to continue his rise to the upper echelon at 155 pounds.

He had all kinds of trouble against Lowe. I want Lentz to be matched up with a better wrestling-based fighter like Sherk.

Lentz recieves too much hate. He's basically the Jon Fitch of the Lightweight division.

They're teammates so that probably won't happen.

I don't necessarily like watching Lentz fight, but he is a damn good fighter. He's only going to improve too, so I say give him a step up in competition.

Ironically I almost fell asleep reading about him.

EDIT: The guy is good though, and I want to see him in the deep end against some of the upper tier guys that he can't take down.
