The UFC 185 lineup continues to take shape, as Elias Theodorou will square off with Roger Narvaez on March 14 in Dallas.

The promotion confirmed the middleweight pairing following an initial report from the Winnipeg Free Press. UFC 185 takes place at American Airlines Center and features a lightweight title clash between Anthony Pettis and Rafael dos Anjos.

The 185-pound winner of “The Ultimate Fighter: Nations,” Theodorou is 2-0 in the Octagon. The 26-year-old Ontario resident scored a second-round TKO over Sheldon Westcott at the reality show’s finale before outpointing Bruno Santos at UFC Fight Night “MacDonald vs. Saffiedine” this past October.

Narvaez made his promotional debut at light heavyweight, losing via second-round TKO to Patrick Cummins at UFC Fight Night in Albuquerque on June 7. His return to 185 pounds proved more successful, as Narvaez captured a split-decision triumph against Luke Barnatt at UFC Fight Night in Austin on Nov. 22.
