Fresh off recent wins at UFC on FOX 9, Bobby Green and Abel Trujillo will collide at UFC 169 in February.
Set for February 1 from Newark, New Jersey, the bout was announced on Thursday by UFC officials. Currently, UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz is set to return and face interim champ Renan Barao in the main event.
Green (22-5) has scored three victories since joining the UFC, including a win over Pat Healy earlier this month. In November, Healy downed James Krause and prior to that, he started the year with a “Submission of the Night” win over Jacob Volkmann.
Overall, Green has won his last seven fights.
Trujillo (11-5) finished Roger Bowling earlier this month in Sacramento. He is 2-1 inside the Octagon.
