UFC Fight Night: Colorado Gains Main Event

Tarec Saffiedine

Originally, welterweights Matt Brown and Tarec Saffiedine were headed to Sweden. Now, they will meet in Colorado.

Officials announced the contest as the main event for UFC Fight Night on February 14 from Broomfield, Colorado. It will be a scheduled five-round affair.

Brown (19-12) had his win streak snapped this past July in a No. 1 contender match with Robbie Lawler, which he lost via decision. Prior to that, “The Immortal” had downed Erick Silva, Mike Pyle, Jordan Mein, Mike Swick, Luis Ramos and Chris Cope early, while scoring a decision over Stephen Thompson.

Saffiedine (15-4) was the final Strikeforce champion and is 1-1 with the UFC. He was finished by Rory MacDonald in October after scoring a win over Hyun Gyu Lim in his long-awaited Octagon debut in January.

Below is the current lineup:

Welterweight: Matt Brown vs. Tarec Saffiedine

Featherweight: Max Holloway vs. Cole Miller
