The UFC has announced that the last fight in need of finalizing on the UFC on FOX 3 fight card has been made official: a lightweight tilt between Thiago Tavares (17-4-1) and Tony Ferguson (13-3).
Originally, Ferguson was slated to face MMA veteran Dennis Hallman, but an injury forced Superman out of the fight and opened the door for Tavares to step up to the plate. Winner of The Ultimate Fighter 13, Ferguson will have an eye on remaining undefeated in the octagon when he takes on the Brazilian UFC staple.
The matchup between Ferguson and Tavares completes the UFC on FOX 3 official fight card.
