Middleweights Kendall Grove and Jason Day will square off at UFC 96 on March 7th in Columbus, Ohio, according to 411 Mania.

Grove (10-4), the winner of The Ultimate Fighter 3 185-pound tournament, rebounded from back-to-back losses to Patrick Cote and Jorge Rivera with a split decision victory over Evan Tanner in his most-recent bout in June 2008. His previous UFC victories came against Ed Herman, Chris Price, and Alan Belcher.

Day (17-6) upset Alan Belcher in his UFC debut at UFC 83 last April but was most-recently defeated by Michael Bisping via first-round TKO at UFC 85 in June. He holds notable victories over Marcus Hicks, David Loiseau, and Jonathan Goulet while his losses include Patrick Cote and Victor Valimaki.

UFC 96, which does not yet have a main event, is also slated to feature Shane Carwin vs. Gabriel Gonzaga and Roger Huerta vs. Spencer Fisher. Former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell is expected to headline the card, though his opponent for the pay-per-view event has not yet been disclosed.
