A featherweight matchup between Leonard Garcia and Cody McKenzie has been added to the UFC’s yearend event in Las Vegas. The bout will likely end up on either the FX or Facebook preliminary card. The UFC announced the matchup via twitter.
Both fighters find themselves in must win situations. Garcia has dropped his last three fights since securing a controversial win in his UFC debut versus Nam Phan. McKenzie has not faired much better, with only one win in his last four bouts.
The UFC’s yearend fight card will take place December 29 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The UFC 155 bill will be headlined by a heavyweight title rematch between UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos and former champion Cain Velasquez.
