UFC 173: Njokuani Returns To Face TUF Alum

Two more lightweights have been added to the Memorial Day weekend UFC 173 card, as Anthony Njokuani takes on Vinc Pichel.

Set for May 25 from Las Vegas, the event features Chris Weidman defending his UFC middleweight title against Lyoto Machida.

Njokuani (16-7) has split his six UFC bouts. He was scheduled to meet Al Iaquinta last year, but a training injury forced him out. He is coming off a knockout win over Roger Bowling.

Pichel (8-1) is an Ultimate Fighter alum, going 1-1 since his time on the reality show. He lost to Rustam Khabilov in his debut, but defeated Garrett Whiteley this past January.
