Two lightweight match ups complete the UFC 68: "The Uprising" card, which is scheduled for March 3 in Columbus, Ohio, according to UFC.com.

Gleison Tibau will take on Jason Dent, and Jamie Varner will clash with newcomer Jason Gilliam in two 155 showdowns that will most likely never make the pay-per-view (PPV) broadcast.

That's because the the top-half of this card is loaded with marquee names, including Tim Sylvia, Randy Couture, Matt Hughes, Rich Franklin, Renato "Babalu" Sobral and Jon Fitch, among others.

Here's the official card:

Hvywt.: Tim Sylvia (23-2) vs. Randy Couture (14-8)
170 lb.: Matt Hughes (40-5) vs. Chris Lytle (22-13-5)
185 lb.: Rich Franklin (20-2) vs. Jason MacDonald (18-7)
205 lb.: Renato "Babalu" Sobral (27-6) vs. Jason Lambert (22-6)
170 lb.: Jon Fitch (12-2) vs. Luigi Fioravanti (10-1)
185 lb.: Martin Kampmann (14-2) vs. Drew McFedries (5-1)
205 lb.: Matt Hamill (2-0) vs. Rex Holman (4-1)
155 lb.: Gleison Tibau (11-4) vs. Jason Dent (12-7)
155 lb.: Jamie Varner (11-2) vs. Jason Gilliam (9-0)
