Former WEC title contender Larson to face Foster at UFC 106

Publish date:

Former WEC title contender Brock Larson will take on Hit Squad's BrianFoster in a late addition to the UFC 106 card on Nov. 21 in Las Vegas, FanHouse learned Sunday.

Both welterweights are coming off a loss last month and have jumped at the opportunity for a quick return to get back on the winning track.

They will meet on the undercard of a stacked lineup that is being highlighted by Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin and Tito Ortiz vs. Forrest Griffin.

Larson (26-3) out of Brainerd, Minn., was recently upset by UFC newcomer Mike Pierce at UFC Fight Night 19 by unanimous decision, ending a five-fight win streak. Larson had previously only lost to top 10 ranked fighters in Jon Fitch and Carlos Condit.

Foster (12-4) lost his UFC debut against Rick Story at UFC 103 by arm-triangle submission but came away with a performance impressive enough to earn him the Fight of the Night honor with Story.

Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin Tito Ortiz vs. Forrest Griffin Jon Fitch vs. Ricardo Almeida Karo Parisyan vs. Dustin Hazelett Amir Sadollah vs. Phil Baroni Ben Saunders vs. Marcus Davis Kendall Grove vs. Jake Rosholt Jason Dent vs. George Sotiropoulos Brock Larson vs. Brian Foster* Fabricio Camoes vs. Caol Uno* Luiz Cane vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira*
