Aldo's return one of three bouts added to Winnipeg card

The UFC's first featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, begins his road back to the top of the weight class on Dec. 16 when he faces surging contender Ricardo "The Bully" Lamas in a rematch of a 2014 bout won by the Brazilian superstar.

The bout is featured on the UFC Fight Night card at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. FOX will televise the event.

Also added to the card, which is headlined by the welterweight clash between Robbie Lawler and Rafael Dos Anjos, are two more intriguing 170-pound showdowns, as Argentina's Santiago Ponzinibbio faces knockout artist "Platinum" Mike Perry, and Canada's Jordan Mein takes on Brazil's Erick Silva in a meeting of veteran action heroes.
