A lightweight matchup between Paul Felder and Daron Cruickshank has been added to UFC Fight Night 81.

Set for January 17 from the TD Garden in Boston, the event features UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw defending his title on FOX Sports 1 against Dominick Cruz.

Felder, who confirmed the news via social media, will be trying to snap a two-fight losing skid. After winning his first 10, including two inside the Octagon, Felder was bested via decision by Ross Pearson and Edson Barboza in 2015.

Cruickshank (16-7) hasn’t won since a 2014 decision over Anthony Njokuani. He is 0-2 with a no-contest over his last three.
