The lightweight fight will be part of UFC 178, which will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Green (23-5) worked his way to a split decision over perennial contender Josh Thomson on Saturday. With the victory, “King” has won 4 straight in the UFC and 8 in a row.
Masvidal (27-8), meanwhile, scored a unanimous decision win over Daron Cruickshank at UFC on FOX 12. The American Top Team fighter is 4-1 in his last 5 bouts and his only loss during that stretch came against Rustam Khabilov.
