Two of the UFC’s most experienced fighters will face off at UFC 229.

Gray Maynard meets Nik Lentz in a lightweight bout at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Oct. 6., per the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Between the two of them, Maynard and Lentz have a combined 39 bouts inside the Octagon.

This will be Maynard’s first fight at 155 pounds since April 2015. A two-time UFC lightweight title challenger, the 39-year-old Maynard made his last three appearances at featherweight, going 2-1. Most recently he defeated Teruto Isihara by unanimous decision at The Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale to improve his professional record to 13-6-1 with one no contest.

That's a pretty friendly intro: "two of the most experienced". I looked at this fight and forgot both were even still fighting. Especially maynard

Didn’t realise Gray was 39, he looked so dominant against Ishihara but he should have a tough time against Lentz. To me Lentz still looks pretty decent, his stand up has actually improved and his chin is definitely still there. I like Lentz here
