A pivotal barn-burner between lightweights Tony Ferguson (pictured) and Abel Trujillo has been added to the deep UFC 181 roster.

Ferguson is perfect through his past three outings. “The Ultimate Fighter 13” winner is coming off August’s split decision victory over Danny Castillo.

Trujillo, meanwhile, will be riding a two-fight winning streak into the tango. “Killa” most recently knocked out Jamie Varner at UFC 169.

Here is the card’s updated lineup:

Eddie Gordon vs. Josh Samman

Todd Duffee vs. Anthony Hamilton

Tony Ferguson vs. Abel Trujillo

Travis Browne vs. Brendan Schaub

Gilbert Melendez vs. Anthony Pettis (UFC lightweight champion)
