UFC 170: Mike Pyle Set to Fight TJ Waldburger
By FCF Staff
UFC 170 has picked up a welterweight bout, as veterans Mike Kyle and TJ Waldburger have reportedly agreed to fight at the February 22nd event, which will go down at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The bout was announced via the promotion on Twitter.
Pyle (25-9-1) is coming off a quick knockout loss at the hands of Matt Brown in August, which ended the 38 year-old’s four fight win streak. During that run Pyle defeated Ricardo Funch, Josh Neer, James Head and Rick Story.
Waldburger (16-8) is also looking to rebound from a KO loss, as the 25 year-old fighter was knocked out by Adlan Amagov at UFC 166 in October. Prior to that the welterweight choked out Nick Catone with second round, triangle-choke last December. Waldburger is 3-2 in his last 5 bouts.
UFC 170 will be headlined by a light-heavyweight bout between Daniel Cormier and former champ Rashad Evans.
