Heavy hitter, Phil Baroni and “Ultimate Fighter” alum, Brad Tavares will come face to face in a middleweight bout at UFC 125 in Las Vegas, Nevada on January 1st, 2011.

Tavares rebounded from a semi-final defeat on the eleventh season of “The Ultimate Fighter” to defeat fellow cast member, Seth Baczynskion the live finale in June. He has since been sidelined through injury as well.
