Fresh off their respective wins this past weekend at UFC on FOX 12, lightweights Bobby Green and Jorge Masvidal make quick turnarounds to collide at UFC 178.

Green has quietly rattled off eight straight victories. He served up an upset special over Josh Thomson by taking a split decision on Saturday.

Masvidal, a fellow former Strikeforce star, has won five of his last six contests. He posted a unanimous decision over Daron Cruickshank just three days ago.

A light heavyweight title tilt between champion Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier headlines the pay-per-view broadcast.
