via cdn1.sbnation.com

UFC president Dana White was in a giving mood today. Just minutes after confirming a bout between Mauricio Rua and Thiago Silva, Dana confirmed another huge bout, this time in the middleweight division. Former Bellator middleweight champion Hector Lombard will make his UFC debut against The All-American, Brian Stann. Here's the tweet:

Lombard (31-2-1, 1 NC) defeated Jared Hess for the inaugural Bellator middleweight title in mid-2009 and successfully defended it once. He also picked up wins in four other Bellator non-title fights. The Cuban-Australian fighter is on a 24-fight unbeaten streak and was one of the faces of the Bellator organization, but couldn't come to terms with the promotion and moved over to the UFC. Stann (12-4) is coming off a first-round knockout of Alessio Sakara at UFC on Fuel 2 earlier this month.

UPDATE - According to a report, the fight will take place at UFC on Fox 4 on August 4th in Los Angeles. The bout will be on the main Fox card.
