Kenny Florian vs. Evan Dunham Agreed for UFC 127 on Feb. 5

Kenny FlorianLightweights Kenny Florian and Evan Dunham will look to get back into title contention and avoid back-to-back losses when they likely square off at UFC 127 on Feb. 5 in Las Vegas, Florian announced on ESPN’s MMA Live on Thursday night.

Florian (14-5) earned wins over Clay Guida and Takanori Gomi to rebound from a loss to champion BJ Penn but dropped a unanimous decision to Gray Maynard in his last fight at August’s UFC 118.

Dunham (11-1) suffered a controversial loss to Sean Sherk last month at UFC 119 after rising up the lightweight rankings with four-straight UFC wins over the likes of Efrain Escudero and Tyson Griffin.

The matchup joins a stacked UFC 127 fight card, which is headlined by middleweight champ Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort and also includes Jon Jones vs. Ryan Bader and Rich Franklin vs. Forrest Griffin.
