UFC 178 has picked up a compelling, middleweight fight, as the promotion has announced Tim Kennedy will face fellow contender Yoel Romero at the September 27th event.

The upcoming card will go down in Las Vegas, Nevada, however, the event’s venue has yet to be determined.

Kennedy (18-4) is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Michael Bisping in April, which extended his win streak to four. The decorated soldier is currently ranked #6 in the UFC’s middleweight division.

Romero (8-1) scored a UD win over Brad Tavares in his last outing, and the accomplished wrestler has also won four in a row. Romero is positioned at #11 in the 185 rankings.

UFC 178 will be headlined by a light-heavyweight bout between champion Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson.
