It’s official, either Phil De Fries or Stipe Miocic will leave “UFC on FUEL TV: Sanchez vs. Ellenberger” with a blemished resume. The heavyweight scrap was announced for the February 15th event on Wednesday afternoon.

How the rest of the card rounds out will determine whether the fight will air during FUEL’s live broadcast.

De Fries is perfect through his first eight professional bouts and posted a unanimous decision victory over Rob Broughton in his big league debut at UFC 138.

Miocic collected his seventh career win by edging Joey Beltran for a decision at UFC 136. The October contest marked his first Octagon foray.

The CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska will host the festivities. A pivotal welterweight contest between Jake Ellenberger and Diego Sanchez headlines the freebie fight card.

Ivan Menjivar vs. John Albert

Jonathan Brookins vs. Rani Yayha
