Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

A pair of flyweights are set to do battle in 2014 after they each made successful UFC debuts in 2013.

Former Bellator bantamweight champion Zach Makovsky and Josh Sampo are scheduled to fight at UFC 170. The news was announcedwitter.com/UFCNews/status/420351738596438017 by the UFC via Twitter.

Makovsky, 31, made his UFC debut at UFC on Fox 9 in December where he earned a unanimous decision victory over WEC and UFC veteran Scott Jorgensen. From 2010 to 2012, Makovsky was the Bellator bantamweight champion and only made his flyweight debut in 2013 after he departed the Viacom-owned organization.

Sampo, 29, earned his first win in the Octagon in his last bout when he choked out Ryan Benoit at The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale in November. He is 11-2 in professional MMA.

UFC 170 takes place on February 22 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will air on pay-per-view and is headlined by a women's bantamweight title fight between champion Ronda Rousey and challenger Sara McMann.
