Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) announced Tuesday that two more fights are set for its UFC 169: "Cruz vs. Barao" pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on Feb. 1, 2014.
A lightweight contest between two promotional debutants features Tony Martin, who is undefeated at 7-0 in his mixed martial arts (MMA) career, will duke it out with the current M-1 Global welterweight champion, Rashid Magomedov. The latter has not fought in over a year.
Martin's most significant victory was over UFC alumn and former highly touted prospect, Phillipe Nover.
Also on the card, Neil Magny will try and stop a two-fight losing skid when he welcomes Gasan Umalatov to the Octagon, who is making his first appearance for the promotion -- proving that UFC's stock in Russian fighters is certainly rising.
Magny holds a promotional record of 1-2 inside the Octagon, while Umalatov makes his first appearance ever for UFC after winning eight out of his past nine fights, improving to 14-2-1 in his career.
The fight will be contested in the welterweight division.
UFC 169 will also feature the highly-anticipated return of Dominick Cruz, who will be looking to establish his dominance in the bantamweight division against the current interim champion, Renan Barao.
The co-main event has Jose Aldo defending his featherweight championship against number one contender, Ricardo Lamas. The card also features a juggernaut fight between heavyweights Frank Mir and Alistair Overeem, along with Chris Cariaso taking on Kyoji Horiguchi in the flyweight division.
