The card takes place January 31 – Super Bowl weekend – from MGM Grand Garden Arena. Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz are the scheduled main event.
Lauzon (24-9) has been a bonus machine since signing with the promotion, winning 13 “Fight,” “Submission,” “Knockout” or “Performance” honors. He is on a two-fight win streak, and is 5-3 in his last eight overall.
