Hector Lombard will look to end a four-fight losing streak when he takes on CB Dollaway in Las Vegas on March 3.
The bout has been added to the UFC 222 card at T-Mobile Arena, sources close to the organization confirmed on Wednesday.
Lombard, the former Bellator middleweight champion, has not recorded an official victory since 2014. The Olympic judoka is coming off a knockout loss to Anthony Smith in September.
He did defeat Josh Burkman in 2015, but the win was vacated and Lombard was suspended a year by the Nevada Athletic Commission as a result of a failed drug test.
Dollaway will be looking to build off a unanimous-decision victory over Ed Herman in July.
The former Arizona State standout in wrestling won that bout at light heavyweight after 19 months away from competition, largely because of a back injury. He returns to middleweight to meet Lombard.
