Garbrandt-Lineker, Murphy-Moras added to Pittsburgh card

The card for the UFC's return to Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Center on Sunday, Feb. 21 is beginning to take shape, with two bouts made official today.

In what promises to be one of the most explosive bantamweight fights in years, unbeaten Cody Garbrandt looks for his third consecutive UFC victory when he faces Brazil's "Hands of Stone," John Lineker. Lineker, a former flyweight contender, is coming off a Fight of the Night win over Francisco Rivera in his UFC bantamweight debut in September.

Plus, former Invicta FC bantamweight champion Lauren Murphy seeks her first UFC win when she battles The Ultimate Fighter 18 standout Sarah Moras, who is 1-1 in the Octagon since coming off the show.

The card airs live on FOX Sports 1. Stay tuned to for more fight card announcements and ticket on sale dates.
