The main event for January’s return to Georgia has been announced, as former Strikeforce champion Luke Rockhold will meet Costa Philippou at UFC Fight Night 35.
Set for January 15 and the Arena at Gwinnett Center, the headline act joins a list of fights including Cole Miller vs. Sam Sicilia and T.J. Dillashaw vs. Mike Easton.
Rockhold (10-2) had his nine-fight win streak snapped earlier this year when he was knocked out by Vitor Belfort in Brazil. That was his debut with the UFC.
Philippou (12-3) has won five of seven UFC bouts, but was topped by Francis Carmont recently. He did boast a five-fight win streak prior to the loss to Carmont.
