ufc fight night 57

Heavyweights Jared Rosholt and Oleksiy Oliynyk will put their unbeaten UFC records on the line this November when they meet inside the Octagon at UFC Fight Night 57, officials announced recently.

Set for November 22, the event takes place inside the Frank Erwin Center on the campus of the University of Texas. So far, several bouts have been booked, but not headliner.

Rosholt (11-1) has picked up three wins since joining the UFC, topping Soa Palelei, Daniel Omielanczuk and Walt Harris. He is on a seven-fight win streak that dates back to a 2012 second round knockout loss to fellow UFC fighter Derrick Lewis.

Prior to embarking on his current career in MMA, Rosholt was a four-time NCAA Div. I national qualifier for Oklahoma State University. He earned 2010 runner-up honors and was a three-time All-American.

Oliynyk (49-9-1) earned a submission win over Anthony Hamilton this past June in his debut, stretching his win streak to 10. That includes nine submission and one TKO win over the likes of Mirko CroCop, Dion Staring and Jeff Monson.

Below is the current lineup:

Flyweight: Joseph Benavidez vs. Dustin Ortiz

Female Strawweight: Paige VanZant vs. Kailin Curran

Lightweight: Matt Wiman vs. Isaac Vallie-Flagg

Middleweight: Luke Barnatt vs. Roger Narvaez

Heavyweight: Jared Rosholt vs. Oleksiy Oliynyk
