A rematch between former welterweight champ Matt Serra and fellow 170-pound veteran Chris Lytle will take place on the pay-per-view main card of UFC 119 on September 25 in Indianapolis, MMAjunkie reports.

In their first meeting in November 2006, Serra earned a split decision over Lytle to win The Ultimate Fighter 4’s welterweight tournament.

Following back-to-back losses to Georges St-Pierre and Matt Hughes, Serra (11-6) rebounded with a first-round knockout of Frank Trigg at UFC 109 in February.

Lytle (29-17-2) scored a second-round submission of Matt Brown at UFC 116 on July 3 for his third-straight win after earning fight night bonuses over Kevin Burns and Brian Foster.

The UFC 119 fight card is headlined by a rematch between former heavyweight title-holders Frank Mir and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, and also features Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Ryan Bader.
