A pair of bantamweights have been booked for the UFC's Super Bowl weekend card.

Edwin Figueroa (9-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) will meet Francisco Rivera (8-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) at UFC 156 in February. UFC officials recently announced the fight booking, saying verbal agreements are in place for the matchup.

UFC 156 takes place Feb. 2 at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook. The main event is a featherweight title fight between champion Jose Aldo and former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar.

I still think Herb Dean gift wrapped Figueroa that win over Cacares with that bogus 2 point deduction Hopefully Rivera shows him how to really win a fight
