Joe Lauzon vs Gray Maynard UFC 155Ultimate Fighting Championship officials on Monday confirmed another bout for its year-ending UFC 155 pay-per-view event on Dec. 29 in Las Vegas, adding a lightweight battle between two of the division’s top contenders.

Former Ultimate Fighter participants Joe Lauzon and Gray Maynard have agreed to square off just prior to New Year’s Eve.

Lauzon (22-7) is coming off of a triangle submission victory over Jamie Varner at UFC on Fox 4 in Los Angeles. After getting knocked out by Anthony Pettis earlier this year in Japan, Lauzon’s performance against Varner put his name right back in the title mix.

Maynard (11-1) is in much the same boat as Lauzon. He failed in his last title bid, losing to Frankie Edgar at UFC 136 late last year. He righted the ship by winning a split decision over Clay Guida in June.

A victory at UFC 155 would go far to cement either fighter’s standing as a 155-pound contender.

The UFC 155 fight card is expected to feature UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos defending his belt against Cain Velasquez, as well as the return of Chael Sonnen to 205 pounds to square off with former champion Forrest Griffin.
