UFC 171: Daniel Pineda-Robert Whiteford Fight Latest Addition
By FCF Staff
The upcoming UFC 171 card is likely completed, as featherweights Daniel Pineda and Robert Whiteford have agreed to fight at the March 15th event. The card, which will go down at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, now has 13 fights booked.
Pineda (18-10) is looking to rebound from a decision loss to Diego Brandao at UFC FN 26 in August, after tapping out Justin Lawrence at the TUF 17 Finale last August. The veteran fighter has gone 3-3 to date in the UFC.
Whiteford (10-2) was choked out by Jim Hettes in his last outing, which took place at UFC FN 30 in October. The bout marked Whiteford’s UFC debut, who had won 10 straight prior to the defeat.
UFC 171 will be headlined by a bout between Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler to determine the promotion’s welterweight champion.
