Hermansson vs. Shabazyan Pushed Back to May 22

This week, the UFC brings a stacked Pay-Per-View card to us from Houston Texas, with the Lightweight title up for grabs between Michael Chandler and Charles Oliveira.

The featured bout on the card was set to be a Middleweight scrap between Jack Hermansson and Edmen Shahbazyan, but the fight has been postponed to the following week.

The bout will now take place on the UFC Vegas 27 Fight Night card, which is headlined by Rob Font and Cody Garbrandt.

Jack Hermansson, ranked at #7, has not competed since a main event showing against Marvin Vettori back in December. The grappling expert will look to get back on the right track and continue his path towards the title.

Previously unbeaten Edmen Shahbazyan lost his 0 to Derek Brunson last August and has not competed since. The Glendale Fight Club product is just 23 years old and holds all but two wins by first round knockout.

The reason for the postponement of this bout has not been revealed, but it certainly does boost the upcoming Fight Night card, which is lacking in terms of name value.
