Hector Lombard has his first fight in over a year booked, as the UFC has announced that the welterweight will take on fellow contender Neil Magny on March 20th.

The fight will co-headline UFC Fight Night 84, which will take place in Brisbane, Australia.

Lombard (34-4-1) hasn’t fought since January, 2015, when he decisioned Josh Burkman. After the bout, however, it was announced that Lombard had tested positive for performance enhancing drugs, and the Judoka was suspended for a year. The result was also overturned.

The former Bellator champ is 3-1, with 1 no contest, in his last 5 fights.

Magny (17-4) is coming off a split decision win over Kelvin Gastelum in November. The rugged fighter is 4-1 in his last 5 bouts,

UFC FN 84 will feature a heavyweight fight between Frank Mir and Mark Hunt in the main event.
