A middleweight pairing between Tor Troéng and Rafael Natal has been announced for UFC on FOX Sports 1 3. UFC officials announced the pairing on Friday.
Natal will be looking to make it three-straight victories when he takes on the Swedish fighter. Natal was last in action at UFC on FX 8, where he defeated Joao Zeferino.
TUF 17′s Tor Troéng will look to make it two-straight victories since his disappointing run on the reality series.
