Brandon Thatch vs. Stephen Thompson booked for Feb. 14 in Colorado

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has added the welterweight showdown between Brandon Thatch and Stephen Thompson to its upcoming "Fight Night" mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1 inside the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colorado.

Thatch (11-1) hasn't been seen for over a year, taking an extended break to heal up from a litany of injuries. Prior to his hiatus, "Ruckus" compiled an impressive 10-fight winning streak, which includes consecutive finishes over Justin Edwards and Paulo Thiago.

But his opponent knows a thing or two about striking.

Thompson (10-1) -- a former kickboxer -- is 5-1 under the UFC banner with three brutal knockouts. "Wonderboy" has been perfect across his last four contests, which includes a unanimous decision win over former title contender Patrick Cote last September.

Who ya' got?

No main event has been announced for this upcoming card; however, Cole Miller vs. Max Holloway, Zach Makovsky vs. Timothy Elliott, and Ray Borg vs. Chris Kelades have all recently hopped on board (more on that here).
