A couple of former lightweights will be able to settle an old score, this time at featherweight.
The bout adds to the developing card, which takes place on Feb. 14 at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colo.
Lentz (25-6-2, 1 NC) comes into the fight fresh off a win over Manny Gamburyan at a UFC Fight Night card in May. He and Tavares first fought in 2010, and the two battled to a majority decision after three rounds.
Tavares (19-5-1) is on a two-fight winning streak, winning his last bout as a debuting featherweight against Robbie Peralta. The fighter’s one and only career draw came against Lentz in their first meeting.
UFC Fight Night 60 is scheduled to be headlined by a welterweight fight between Matt Brown and Tarec Saffiedine.
