Green-Masvidal is on for UFC 178

Another big fight added to UFC 178 in Las Vegas...
Following big wins on last weekend's UFC Fight Night card in San Jose, lightweight contenders Bobby "King" Green and Jorge "Gamebred" Masvidal will get right back to business on Saturday, September 27, when they meet in a pivotal UFC 178 bout in Las Vegas.

Both graduates of the Strikeforce organization, Green and Masvidal have taken their game to the next level in the Octagon, with Green's eight-fight winning streak including four UFC victories, most recently a split decision win over Josh Thomson last Saturday. On that same card, Miami's Masvidal rose from a first-round knockdown to decision Daron Cruickshank. "Gamebred" has now won two in row and five of his last six.

Tickets for UFC 178, which is headlined by the UFC light heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier, and which also features a featherweight tilt pitting Conor McGregor against Dustin Poirier, go on sale on Aug. 8
