UFC FN 35: Romero-Brunson, Pichel-Whitely Added
By FCF Staff
The line-up for UFC Fight Night 35 continues to near completion, as the promotion has confirmed two more bouts for the January 15th event in Duluth, Georgia.
At middleweight, Derek Brunson (11-2) will take on Yoel Romero (6-1). Brunson is coming off an impressive, first round tap-out victory over Brian Houston at UFC FN 31 earlier this month.
Romero, meanwhile, also competed at the November 6th card and knocked out Ronny Markes in the third round.
In a lightweight contest, Vinc Pichel (7-1) will battle Garett Whitely (7-1).
Pichel will be competing for the first time since he was knocked out by a Rustam Khabilov suplex last December, while Whitely is coming off a stoppage loss to Alan Patrick Silva Alves in October.
UFC FN 35 will be hosted by the Gwinnett Center and will feature former Strikeforce middleweight champ Luke Rockhold taking on Costa Philippou in the main event.
