The UFC has added some Philly love to UFC 208!

UFC Lightweight Paul “The Irish Dragon” Felder has been added to the pay-per-view card in a three-round bout against Gilbert “Durinho” Burns at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on February 11th.


Felder (12-3), a born and bred in Philadelphia, is undefeated on the east coast and the former CFFC lightweight champion, before vacating his belt to join the UFC in August of 2014. “The Irish Dragon” is a member of the Renzo Gracie Team in Philly.

With bouts being added almost daily, the card is nearly full but missing a major gap. The main event. Previously I reported the inaugural UFC Women’s Featherweight title bout between Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie was the main event, however since its announcement it seems it is not the main event, it is a five-round fight on the main card.
