ufc 199

After sitting out all of 2015, Bobby Green will return to action this year at UFC 199 against Dustin Poirier. The bout was first reported by the Los Angeles Daily News.

Set for June 4 from L.A. and The Forum, Luke Rockhold will defend his middleweight belt against former champion Chris Weidman in the main event. The co-headliner features Dominick Cruz vs. Urijah Faber for bantamweight gold.

Green (23-6) had won eight fights in a row before a 2014 defeat at the hands of Edson Barboza. In 2015, fights with Jorge Masvidal and Al Iaquinta were called off due to injuries by “The King.” Poirier (19-4) sports a three-fight win streak since moving to 155 pounds from featherweight after a loss to current champion Conor McGregor.

Below is the current lineup:

UFC Middleweight Championship
Luke Rockhold (c) vs. Chris Weidman

UFC Bantamweight Championship
Dominick Cruz (c) vs. Urijah Faber

Lightweight: Dustin Poirier vs. Bobby Green
