Julian Lane (12-8-1) will defend his welterweight title in a rematch against Jeff Lentz (11-7-1) at Ring of Combat 62 on March 2 in Atlantic City.

The Ohio native Lane won the ROC title with a decision victory over Lentz at ROC 61 in November.

The two-time “Ultimate Fighter” veteran has become a world traveler, competing in Russia as well as winning the bare-knuckle boxing BKB world title last year with a victory over the previously unbeaten Jimmy Sweeney in England.

Lane has seven career wins via submission, although he’s probably best known for his “let me bang, bro” rant from his first sting on TUF in 2012.

The New Jersey native Lentz also competed on TUF, appearing in Season 12. He’s also a one-time Bellator veteran and has competed multiple times for the CFFC organization.

Lane will stay busy in March, as he’ll also defend his BKB title later in the month.
