Evan Dunham, who once appeared on the cusp of competing for the UFC lightweight title, will look to rebound from a recent loss when he takes on Gleison Tibau at UFC 156.
UFC officials announced the 155-pound bout for the Super Bowl weekend card late Wednesday night. It will likely be added to the prelim.
Dunham (13-3) was defeated by TJ Grant this past September, seeing his two-fight win streak snapped. Dunham, who won his first 11 pro fights, is just 2-3 over his last five.
Tibau (26-8) defeated Francisco Trinaldo earlier this year, improving to 4-1 in his last five UFC bouts.
