Larkin-Tumenov on for UFC 195 in January

While Robbie Lawler battles Carlos Condit with the welterweight title on the line in the main event of UFC 195 on January 2 in Las Vegas, two of the division's top prospects will face off in undercard action at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, as surging Lorenz Larkin faces fellow 170-pound standout Albert Tumenov.

Tickets for UFC 195, which also features the bout between top five ranked heavyweights Stipe Miocic and Andrei Arlovski, go on sale to the general public on Friday, October 23.

A former middleweight prospect, Larkin has found his home at welterweight, where he has won two straight in emphatic fashion, knocking out both John Howard and Santiago Ponzinibbio in bouts that earned "The Monsoon" a pair of performance bonuses.

Ever since a debut split decision loss to Ildemar Alcantara in 2014, Nalchik, Russia's Tumenov has won four straight, three by knockout, most recently picking up a Performance of the Night award for his October 3 knockout of Alan Jouban.
