Fight Announcement – Erik Koch Moves Up To 155, Meets Rafaello Oliveira at UFC 170
by Scott "Kubryk" Sawitz on January 4, 2014

Duke Roufus once spoke of how hard of a weight cut Erik Koch had to make featherweight, as the Roufusport fighter was a Top 10 caliber opponent for anyone in the division but had a difficult time getting there. Following a wild fight against Dustin Poirier in Milwaukee, WI, the featherweight announced his intentions to move up a weight class.

Now he’ll get his wish, facing Rafaello Oliveira at UFC 170.

Koch is on a two fight losing streak at 145, losing to Ricardo Lamas at a UFC on Fox card in Chicago and to Poirier in Milwaukee.

Oliveira was recently stopped by Edson Barboza via leg kicks at UFC 162.
