UFC On FOX 23: New Bouts Added To Denver Card

Hector Lombard

Middleweights Hector Lombard and Brad Tavares have been added to the upcoming UFC on FOX 23 card.

Set for January 28 from the Pepsi Center in Colorado, the main card is expected to air on FOX. No main event has been tabbed yet.

Lombard, a former Bellator champion, has not won a fight since March 2014, dropping back-to-back finishes in 2016 to Dan Henderson and Neil Magny. He also had a win overturned vs. Josh Burkman.

Tavares bested Caio Magalhaes via split decision in September, but is just 2-3 over his last five fights.

Along with Lombard-Tavares, recent Ultimate Fighter 24 semifinalists Eric Shelton and Alexandre Pantoja will square off, Jason Gonzalez will meet J.C. Cottrell and Sam Alvey takes on Nate Marquardt.

Below is the current lineup:

Middleweight: Hector Lombard vs. Brad Tavares
