Bobby Green to face Jorge Masvidal

Coming off respective wins at a UFC on Fox event last weekend, lightweights Bobby Green and Jorge Masvidal have agreed to fight at UFC 178 in Las Vegas on Sept. 27, promotion officials announced Tuesday.

The pay-per-view event will take place at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Green (23-5) is 4-0 since his UFC debut in February 2013. He earned a split decision against former Strikeforce champion Josh Thomson last weekend in San Jose, California. Green will enter the Masvidal contest on an eight-fight win streak.

Masvidal (27-8) is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Daron Cruickshank. A former No. 1 contender in Strikeforce, Masvidal is 4-1 in the UFC. He came up short in a decision loss to Rustam Khabilov in November.

A light heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier is scheduled to headline the UFC 178 event.
