Doomsday Gets Boston Homecoming on Jan. 18

 
Born and bred in Boston, welterweight John "Doomsday" Howard will get a home game on January 18, as he battles Lorenz Larkin in a duel of strikers at the TD Garden.

The UFC Fight Night event is headlined by the featherweight matchup between Conor McGregor and Dennis Siver, and a lightweight clash pitting Benson Henderson against Eddie Alvarez. The card will air on FOX Sports 1.

In his last bout in Boston on August 17, 2013, Howard upset highly-touted Uriah Hall to kick off his second stint in the UFC in impressive style. California's Larkin is looking to get back into the win column against "Doomsday," and "The Monsoon" won't have to look far to find his aggressive foe.

In another verbally agreed to bout, Matt Van Buren and Sean O'Connell will meet in a light heavyweight matchup.
