The UFC’s Super Saturday card, better known as UFC 169, has been given a middleweight fight between between Tom Watson (16-6) and Nick Catone (9-4).

Catone tries to stave off the dreaded three-fight losing streak as he comes in to battle Watson. He has been finished in his previous two outings.

His opponent Watson comes back in the hopes to bring his UFC record back to .500, dropping his last fight to Thales Leites at UFC 163. The fan-favorite is 1-2 for the promotion with his sole win coming from a February TKO over Stanislov Nedkov.

UFC 169 takes place on February 2nd at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. It is headlined by a pair of lighter weight title fights. The first of which is a long-awaited title shot for Ricardo Lamas who takes on featherweight champion Jose Aldo after injuries for both men thwarted the bout earlier this year. The main event features the return of the official bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz. Cruz will return from a two-year layoff and wants to unify his belt with the interim bantamweight belt help firmly by Renan Barao.

A heavyweight bout between Alistair Overeem and Frank Mir is also on the card.
