A pair of former champions in different promotions will meet later this year, as Hector Lombard battles Nate Marquardt at UFC 166: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos III.
The card is set for October 19 from Houston’s Toyota Center. The bout will likely be on the main card.
Lombard (32-4-1) recently decided to move down from middleweight to welterweight. The former Bellator champion called for a match with Marquardt.
Marquardt, an ex-Strikeforce champion, is competing in the UFC for a second time. He is 32-12-2 overall, including a recent loss to Jake Ellenberger.
