A pair of this past weekend’s biggest lightweight winners will return to action quickly, and against each other.
Bobby Green (22-5 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Abel Trujillo (11-5 MMA, 2-1 UFC), who each picked up significant wins at UFC on FOX 9 this past Saturday, have been booked to fight at UFC 169 in February.
UFC 169 takes place on Feb. 1 at Prudential Center at Newark, N.J. The evening’s main card airs on pay-per-view while prelims are expected to air on FOX Sports 1. A pair of title fights headlines the Super Bowl Saturday card as bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz returns to meet interim champ Renan Barao in a title unification bout, and featherweight champ Jose Aldo defends against Ricardo Lamas.
