The final UFC 222 bout has been officially announced as Mike Pyle and Zak Ottow have been added to the event on March 3 at the T-Mobile in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Las-Vegas Review Journal initially reported the fight earlier in the month.
Veteran welterweight Pyle (27-13-1) has not fought inside the Octagon since UFC 207 in December 2016 when he lost to Alex Garcia by way of a first round knockout.
Ottow (15-5) has a mixed record since joining the UFC in October 2016. He has a notable win inside the Octagon against Josh Burkman, although he’s coming off a loss to Jingliang Li by TKO last November.
UFC 222 is now headlined with a featherweight championship fight between champ Cristiane Justino against former Invicta Fighting Championships queen Yana Kunitskaya. Frankie Edgar features in the co-main event against Brian Ortega in a featherweight fight after Edgar’s previous opponent Max Holloway pulled out of the fight due to injury.
