Lister-Leites Bout Postponed

Although I am certain that UFC Fight Night 15, which takes place in Omaha, NE on September 17, will go on as scheduled, they will have to find another bout to add to their event; according to Damon Martin of MMA Weekly, the bout between Dean Lister and Thales Leites scheduled for UFC Fight Night 15, has been postponed due to a knee injury suffered by Lister – which has been confirmed by Haymaker’s Empire, Lister’s management team.

Because of this development, there lies the possibility of both fighters meeting at a later date; fight cards are filling up rather quickly even as this article is posted so the most likely scenario is a November meeting at a UFC event, which has not been announced yet.  One rumor that is floating out there is a possible November UFC event in Portland, OR, but neither the UFC or the Rose Garden – the likeliest venue for a UFC card – have confirmed a date or location for a UFC event as of this writing.
