UFN 35, UFC 169 Secure Official Bouts

Despite it being Christmas Eve, UFC officials were busy as Santa Claus late Tuesday night, confirming three fights for 2014.

At UFC Fight Night 35, Jason High will face Beneil Dariush instead of Adlan Amagov, and Alptekin Ozkilic faces Louis Smolka.

Also, Ultimate Fighter 17 alums Clint Hester and Andy Enz will square off at UFC 169 in February from New Jersey.

UFC Fight 35 features a main event between Luke Rockhold and Costa Philippou on January 15 from Georgia. High (18-4) has won his last two fights and is 9-1 in his last 10.

Dariush (6-0) had his first professional fight in 2009, but fought just once a year until this past year when he scored two finishes.

Ozkilic (9-1) won his Octagon debut via split decision over Darren Uyenoyama and has only lost to veteran Chico Camus in his career. Smolka (6-0) will be making his debut with the promotion and has finished all six of his opponents.

Hester (9-3) is unbeaten in his last five fights, while Enz (7-0) earned three first round submission victories this year after appearing on TUF.
