UFC officials announced the match-up on Wednesday.

Sam Sicilia (11-1) is also on quite the winning streak, currently at 7. He did not fair so well on the reality show, however in his UFC debut at the TUF Live Finale, the Dominick Cruz team member defeated Cristiano Marcello by KO in the second round.
