Evan Dunham and Gleison Tibau to Fight at UFC 156

Lightweights Evan Dunham and Gleison Tibau will duel at UFC 156 on Super Bowl weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dunham is coming off of a ”˜fight of the night’ decision loss to TJ Grant at UFC 152 and Tibau won his last fight against Francisco Trinaldo by decision at UFC 153. Tibau has now won four of his last five, but the 17 fight UFC veteran has historically had problems putting together winning streaks to lead him to a championship. The bout is likely to take place on the opening portion of the card.
