Local welterweight Mike Pyle will have a chance to bounce back from his first loss in two years at home.
Pyle (25-9-1 MMA, 8-4 UFC) is slated to meet T.J. Waldburger (16-8 MMA, 4-3 UFC) at UFC 170 Feb. 22 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
UFC officials confirmed the pairing Tuesday night. The promotion is currently matchmaking for Las Vegas' next pay-per-view event as Pyle vs. Waldburger becomes the fourth fight announced.
Former Olympian and Strikeforce champion Daniel Cormier's debut at light heavyweight, in which he faces former UFC champion Rashad Evans, headlines the event.
Other bouts revealed include a welterweight tilt between Rory MacDonald and Demian Maia, as well as a lightweight fight pitting Rafael dos Anjos against Rustam Khabilov.
The 38-year-old Pyle was on a four-fight win streak before Matt Brown knocked him out in the first round at UFC Fight Night 26. Waldburger is also coming off a first-round knockout loss, falling to Adlan Amagov at UFC 166.
