Nik Lentz (20-3-2 MMA, 4-0-1 UFC) and Waylon Lowe (10-3 MMA, 2-1 UFC) will square off at Ultimate Fight Night 24 from Seattle’s Key Arena on March 26.

A source close to the negotiations confirmed the news to MMADieHards.com.

Lentz is coming off a controversial split decision victory over Tyson Griffin at November’s UFC 123. The victory upped Lentz’s current win streak to three fights.  Lentz is undefeated over his last 13 outings, with 11 wins and two draws.

Lowe most recently defeated Willamy Freire via unanimous decision in January at UFC Fight for the Troops 2. Since losing to Melvin Guillard in his Octagon debut, Lowe has posted back-to-back victories against Steve Lopez and Freire.

Ultimate Fight Night 24 is headlined by a light heavyweight clash between Tito Ortiz and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.  The event is the lead-in to the new season of The Ultimate Fighter on Spike TV.
