Featherweights Leonard Garcia and Cody McKenzie will help ring in the New Year, as UFC officials confirmed on Saturday that they will square off at UFC 155.
UFC 155, which features a main event between UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez, takes place December 29 from Las Vegas.
Garcia and McKenzie is likely slated for the prelims for the evening.
Garcia, who trains at Greg Jackson’s gym in New Mexico, is 15-9-1 in his career, but has gone just 2-5 since joining the UFC. With three consecutive losses on his resume, Garcia will be in need of a victory.
McKenzie (13-3) is coming off a devastating loss to former UFC featherweight contender Chad Mendes.
