UFC officials have announced a bout between Chad Mendes and Manny Gamburyan for February’s UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche card. The event takes place February 23 from the Honda Center in Anaheim.
Mendes (13-1) picked up a second consecutive victory this past weekend, stopping Yaotzin Meza. He also earned a win over Cody McKenzie earlier this year, rebounding from a loss to UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo.
Gamburyan (12-7) has gone 3-5 since joining the ranks of the UFC. He topped Michihiro Omigawa this past August, snapping a three-fight losing skid.
