Louis Smolka vs Matheus Nicolau Added to UFC 219
The UFC announced that flyweights Louis Smolka and Matheus Nicolau will fight each other at UFC 219.
Nicolau will be ending his 1-year suspension for a USADA violation this month and then will be eligible to return to action. He tested positive for a banned substance and was removed from his scheduled UFC Fight Night 100 matchup against Yuta Sasaki. He upset John Moraga in his last fight.
Smolka has been on an awful streak. He has lost his last three fights.
UFC 219 is scheduled for December 30 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
