Leonard Garcia WEC 48

A featherweight bout between Leonard Garcia and Cody McKenzie has been added to the year-end UFC 155 fight card in Las Vegas.

Ultimate Fighting Championship officials announced the bout on Saturday.

Garcia (15-9-1) is trying to rebound having lost three consecutive bouts. He most recently lost to Matt Grice at UFC on FX 3 in June.

McKenzie (13-3) is also trying to get back on track, having lost three of his last four bouts. He suffered a knockout loss due to a body shot from Chad Mendes at the UFC 148 fight card in Las Vegas in July.

The two will clash in support of a UFC 155 main event that sees heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos put his belt on the line against Cain Velasquez.

UFC 155 takes place on Dec. 29 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
