Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

Middleweights Brad Tavares and Lorenz Larkin are set to compete at UFC Fight Night 35 this January.

There's more fight announcement news for UFC Fight Night 35. Last night the UFC confirmed a middleweight matchup between Brad Tavares and Lorenz Larkin for the January 15th Fox Sports 1 card:

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.

UFC Fight Night 35 also features a main event between Luke Rockhold and Constantinos Philippou, as well as a co-main event between Ovince St. Preux and Thiago Silva that pesky opponent known as TBD.
