The UFC on FUEL TV fight card continues to take shape as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently made a pair of bouts official for its network telecast on Feb. 15, 2012, live from Omaha Civic Auditorium in Omaha, Nebraska.

UFC.com has it:

Two lightweights will get their chance in the UFC's toughest division as they make their debuts next month. Anton Kuivanen will fight Justin Salas at the February 15 FUEL TV event in Omaha. The Finnish Kuivanen has finished half of his 16 wins by submission and is currently on a 9-fight win streak. He'll look to make it ten against Colorado's 9-3 Salas.

In a middleweight bout that same night, Sean Loeffler will take on Buddy Roberts. Roberts is an 11-2 veteran who fights out of Jackson's in Albuquerque, NM; fellow finisher Loeffler has stopped his last six opponents.

UFC on Fuel TV will be headlined by a welterweight war featuring top division contenders Diego Sanchez and Jake Ellenberger facing off for a spot in the crowded 170-pound title chase.
