UFC finalizes Sept. 6 'Breakthrough' card

The UFC finalized Thursday the Chuck Liddell and Rashad Evans-headlined "Breakthrough" card on Sept. 6 with the addition of a middleweight bout between Jason Day and Jason Lambert.

The ten-bout card, taking place at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, will be the UFC's first stop in the state of Georgia since UFC 13 in May 1997.

Canada's Day (17-6) won his UFC debut in April against Alan Belcher but was completely outmatched in his next fight in a TKO loss to Michael Bisping in June.

Lambert (23-8), who opened his UFC and WEC career winning six out of seven, has lost his last two fights this year. Lambert's biggest win was against Renato "Babalu" Sobral via TKO at UFC 68 "Uprising" in March 2007.
