Both fight bookings were announced by the UFC on FOX Sports Live.

UFC 194 will come from the MGM Grand Garden Arena on December 12 and will be headlined by a featherweight title unification bout as champion Jose Aldo meets interim champion Conor McGregor.

Faber (32-8) is returning to bantamweight after losing to Frankie Edgar in a featherweight bout at UFC Fight Night 66 earlier this year. He is 2-2 in his last four fights and both of those wins came by submission. Saenz (11-2) made his UFC debut last year and is currently on a seven fight winning streak. Three of those wins have come in the UFC and his most recent win came against Sirwan Kakai last month.

Holloway (14-3) has won seven straight fights following defeats against Dennis Bermudez and Conor McGregor. During his winning streak, six of the wins have come by stoppage and he recently defeated Charles Oliveira at UFC Fight Night 74. Stephens (24-11) is coming off a TKO win against Bermudez and is 4-2 since dropping to featherweight. Two of his four wins at featherweight have come by TKO/KO and he has sixteen career TKO/KO victories.
