Robbie Lawler and Carlos Condit will headline the first UFC event in 2016 this January at UFC 195.
Lawler, the reigning UFC welterweight champion, will defend his title against the former interim champion on January 2 from Las Vegas and the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Tickets for the event go on sale beginning Wednesday for UFC Fight Club members at 10 a.m. PT. UFC newsletter subscribers can buy tickets on Thursday, while tickets for general public go on sale Friday.
They are priced between $104-$804 and are available online or at the MGM Grand box office.
Lawler (26-10) is coming off one of the greatest fights in mixed martial arts history, a knockout victory over top-ranked Rory MacDonald at UFC 189, and looks to keep the momentum going when he clashes with Condit.
Since returning to the Octagon in 2013, “Ruthless” has amassed a 7-1 record that includes knockout victories over MacDonald, Jake Ellenberger and Josh Koscheck.
Condit (30-8), the last WEC welterweight champion, is no stranger to high profile fights, having gone to the championship rounds with the likes of St-Pierre and Nick Diaz, and successfully defending the WEC belt three times.
“The Natural Born Killer” has finished 27 of his 30 pro victories – 14 by way of submission – showing that the 31-year-old known for his devastating striking has the ability to finish the fight wherever the fight goes.
