Luke Rockhold vs. Costa Philippou booked for UFC Fight Night 35

Scott Olmos-US PRESSWIRE

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Georgia with UFC Fight Night 35: 'Rockhold vs. Philippou'.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Georgia with UFC Fight Night 35: 'Rockhold vs. Philippou' live from The Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth on January 15, 2014. The card will be headlined by former Strikeforce Middleweight champion Luke Rockhold against Costa Philippou.

Both fighters are looking to get back into the winner's circle after disappointing showings in their last fights. Rockhold was last seen getting knocked out by Vitor Belfort at UFC on FX: 'Belfort vs. Rockhold' in Brazil, while Philippou had a underwhelming showing against Francis Carmont at UFC 165 in Toronto, Canada.

This will be the first time in Philippou's UFC career that he'll be fighting in the main event.

UFC President Dana White made the announcement to open the UFC 167 post-fight press conference on Saturday night (Nov. 16, 2013) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main card is expected to air on Fox Sports 1.
