A heavyweight bout between two fighters coming off defeats in their UFC debuts has been booked for UFC on FOX 10 as Nikita Krylov will meet Walt Harris.
UFC officials announced the fight booking on Thursday evening and the bout will be placed on the preliminary card.
UFC on FOX 10 takes place on January 25th from the United Center in Chicago and will be headlined by a lightweight bout as former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson meets former Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson.
Krylov (15-3) was defeated by Soa Palelei in his UFC debut by TKO in the third round. The fight marked the first time in his career that he made it out of the first round, and he has dropped two of his last three fights.
Harris (5-2) made his debut last week at The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale and lost a decision to Jared Rosholt. The defeat snapped a four fight winning streak and both of his career defeats have come by unanimous decision.
