Four Welterweight Contenders Meet in UFC 207 Bouts

The UFC 207 card on December 30 in Las Vegas got a double jolt of welterweight action on Tuesday, as the promotion announced that former world champion Johny Hendricks will return to face Neil Magny, and Matt "The Immortal" Brown will take on former Strikeforce titleholder Tarec Saffiedine at T-Mobile Arena.

UFC 207, which is headlined by the UFC women's bantamweight championship bout between Amanda Nunes and Ronda Rousey, airs live on Pay-Per-View from T-Mobile arena.

Looking to get back in the race to regain his 170-pound title, the No. 7-ranked Hendricks is eager to return to the form that took him to the top of the division in 2014, and a win over the No. 9-ranked Magny, who is 10-2 in his last dozen bouts, is a step in the right direction for "Bigg Rigg."

Also seeking a return to the win column is Ohio's Brown, an all-action battler who is always willing to fight the best in the world at anytime. He will get his wish when he faces Saffiedine, a fellow contender who has emerged victorious in six of his last eight.

Stay tuned to UFC.com for more fight card announcements.
