T.J. Waldburger and Mike Pyle will fight one another at UFC 170, UFC officials announced today through the Las Vegas Sun.

UFC 170 will take place on February 22 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The 38-year-old Pyle (25-9-1) is coming off a first-round knockout loss to Matt Brown at UFC Fight Night 26.  Prior to that fight, Pyle was riding a four-fight win streak.  Against Waldburger, Pyle will be looking to get back into the win column.

Waldburger (16-8) is also coming off a first-round KO loss, his at the hands of Adlan Amagov at UFC 166.  He holds an overall record of 4-3 inside the Octagon since his promotional debut in 2011.

UFC 170 is already set to headline with Daniel Cormier’s debut at light heavyweight against former 205-lb. champion Rashad Evans.  Also on the card are welterweights Rory MacDonald fighting Demian Maia and lightweights Rafael dos Anjos fighting Rustam Khabilov.
