The Ultimate Fighting Championship continues to build the card for its upcoming, February 1st card in Newark, New Jersey, which will be hosted by the city’s Prudential Center.
The latest match-ups that have been booked for the event include lightweight Tony Martin taking on Rashid Magomedov and Neil Magny battling welterweight Gasan Umalatov.
Martin (7-0) will be making his Octagon debut having submitted five of his seven opponents to date. Magomedov (15-1), meanwhile, is also making his UFC debut and has won eight straight bouts.
Magny (8-3) will be looking to end a two fight losing skid, as the welterweight is coming off consecutive losses to Sergio Moraes and Seth Baczynski. Umalatov (14-2-1) is also a UFC newcomer who has gone 4-1 in his last five fights.
UFC 169 will also feature bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz taking on interim champ Renan Barao, and featherweight champion Jose Aldo fighting Ricardo Lamas.
