Kevin Lee vs. Jon Tuck Added to UFC 178

UFC LogoA lightweight bout between prospects Kevin Lee and Jon Tuck has been added to the lineup for UFC 178, officials announced on Thursday.

The Lee-Tuck showdown adds to the developing fight card, which takes place in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand on Sept. 27.

Lee (8-1) picked up his first UFC win in his last outing, edging out a split decision over Jesse Ronson at the recent TUF 19 Finale. The fight got him back in the win column after dropping his first career loss, a unanimous decision to Al Iaquinta at UFC 169.

Tuck (8-1) is also coming into the fight off a win, which was a technical knockout of Jake Lindsey at UFC Fight Night Albuquerque. The fighter known as “Super Saiyan” is 2-1 in the Octagon.

UFC 178 is scheduled to be headlined by a light heavyweight title fight between champion Jon Jones and challenger Daniel Cormier.
