Late Wednesday night, a lightweight bout between Gleison Tibau (Pictured) and Evan Dunham was added to the “UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar” lineup.
Tibau is victorious in four of his past five scraps. The Brazilian was last seen posting a decision win over Francisco Trinaldo at UFC 153.
Not too many moons ago, Dunham owned a perfect 11-0 record and was considered to be one of the division’s future contenders. Fast forward two years and the 30-year-old has now dropped three of his last five bouts, with his most recent defeat coming in a unanimous decision to T.J. Grant at UFC 152.
Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts February 2nd festivities.
Here is the card’s current roster:
Evan Dunham vs. Gleison Tibau
Joseph Benavidez vs. Ian McCall
Erick Silva vs. Jay Hieron
Jon Fitch vs. Demian Maia
Rashad Evans vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Alistair Overeem vs. Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva
