A heavyweight clash was added to UFC 209.

Todd Duffee, who hasn't competed since July of 2015, is set to take on Mark Godbeer on March 4 in Las Vegas, sources told MMA Fighting.

Duffee (9-3), who scored one of the fastest knockouts in UFC history, will return to action more than a year and a half after a loss to Frank Mir. The heavyweight is 2-1 since re-signing with the UFC, including knockout wins over Phil De Fries and Anthony Hamilton.

Godbeer (11-3) made his Octagon debut in November, losing to Justin Ledet via first-round submission. The Bellator veteran and former BAMMA heavyweight champion entered the UFC riding a three-fight knockout streak.

The UFC has yet to announce which bout will headline UFC 209.
