A pair of middleweight fights are now a part of the UFC on FOX 17 card on December 19.
Dollaway (15-7) vs. Marquardt (33-15-2) is a matchup of fighters trying to get back on the winning track. Dollaway has dropped two straight, to Lyoto Machida and Michael Bisping. Marquardt, meanwhile, a former Strikeforce and Pancrase champion, has lost five of his past six bouts and been knocked out in three of them, most recently a UFC 188 loss to Kelvin Gastelum.
Samman (12-3) is a Florida native who is riding a four-fight win streak. McCrory (13-3), a fighter with a cult following, retired in 2009, but returned in 2014 and won a pair of Bellator bouts before announcing his return to the UFC this week.
