There were reports circulating earlier this summer that Russian prospect and combat sambo champion, Rustam Khabilov, had signed with the UFC, but there was nothing in the way of confirmation until now, as Valetudo.ru is reporting that Khabilov has indeed signed and will debut in a lighweight bout against Ultimate Fighter alum, Vinc Pichel, at the TUF 16 Finale in December:

Rustam Habil (14-1), the lightweight champion, will make his first fight in the UFC on December 15 in Las Vegas (USA) against another newcomer Octagon, American Vince Pichel (6-0).
