Tavares is 6-1 in the UFC and is currently riding a 4 fight winning streak. The 25-year-old Hawaiian last fought in August vs. Bubba McDaniel, taking a unanimous decision victory over the TUF 17 alum. Brad's only loss in the UFC was against Aaron Simpson at UFC 137 back in 2011.
Larkin lost a highly controversial decision to Francis Carmont in his UFC debut, but the former Strikeforce fighter did pick up a win in Fort Campbell against Chris Camozzi in a highly entertaining fight. The 27-year-old also holds a win over current welterweight contender Robbie Lawler.
