By FCF Staff

UFC Fight Night 60 has picked up a rematch between two established vets, as the promotion has announced that Thiago Tavares will fight Nik Lentz at the upcoming event.

The featherweight fight will take place on February 14th, and will be hosted by Broomfield, Colorado’s 1st Bank Center.

Tavares and Lentz fought for the first time time in January, 2010, and battled to a majority draw. At the time, the two were competing as lightweights.

More recently, Tavares (19-5-1) has scored consecutive wins over Justin Salas and Robbie Peralta, after he was stopped by Khabib Nurmagomedov last January.

Lentz (25-6-2) is coming off a UD win over Manny Gamburyan in May, after he was decisioned by Chad Mendes last December. Lentz is currently ranked #9 in the UFC’s 145 division.

UFC FN 60 will be headlined by a welterweight fight between contenders Tarec Saffiedine and Matt Brown.
