By John Carlin 1st August 2015

The UFC have announced a matchup between Lightweights Jon Tuck (8-1) and Kevin Lee (8-1) to take place at UFC 178 scheduled to be held on September 27, 2014 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Lee is coming off of a split decision victory over Jesse Ronson (13-5) after previously dropping his UFC debut in a unanimous decision loss to Al Iaqunita (8-3) in February.

Tuck, a Guam native who trains out of the MMA Lab down in Arizona, suffered the first defeat of his career at the hands of Norman Parke (20-2) last October in England at UFC Fight Night 30, but has since rebounded with a victory over Jake Lindsey (9-1) where Lindsey tapped due to heel strikes to the body.

Both fighters will be looking to gain some momentum in their respective UFC careers
