Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

A lightweight contest between Tony Ferguson and Abel Trujillo has been added to UFC 181 on Dec. 6 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nev.

Ferguson (16-3) has won four of his past five fights, including a split decision over Dannny Castillo at UFC 177 this past August.

Trujillo (12-5 with one no-contest) defeated Jamie Varner via second-round KO at UFC 169. The performance earned knockout and fight of the night honors. He is 3-1 (with one no-contest) over his past five fights.

Johny Hendricks will defend his welterweight title against Robbie Lawler in a rematch for the main event.
