On Tuesday, a middleweight tango between Tim Kennedy (pictured) and Yoel Romero was added to the UFC 178 lineup.
The UFC announced the shootout via Twitter.
The September 27 event takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada. Either the Mandalay Bay Events Center or larger MGM Grand Garden Arena will serve as host.
Kennedy will be riding a four-right winning streak into the matchup. The former Green Beret most recently posted a lopsided unanimous decision victory over Michael Bisping in April.
Romero has also rattled off four consecutive wins. “Soldier of God” had knocked out his three prior opponents until taking a decision over Brad Tavares in April.
A light heavyweight title tilt between champion Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson headlines the pay-per-view broadcast.
