Barberena and Proctor to scrap in Nashville

Welterweight action fighters Bryan Barberena and Joe Proctor will kick off their 2017 schedule on Apr. 22 when they meet in a UFC Fight Night matchup at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

In the five-round main event, which airs live on FS1, featherweight rivals will settle the score as surging contender Cub Swanson takes on hard-hitting European standout Artem Lobov. Tickets go on sale today.

Winner of nine of his last 11 bouts, "Bam Bam" Barberena has scored three of those victories in the Octagon over Joe Ellenberger, Sage Northcutt and Warlley Alves. In April, he'll face off with scrappy New Englander Proctor, who has finished his last two UFC wins over Justin Edwards and Justin Salas.
