Menjivar vs. Albert added to “UFC on FUEL 1″

A bantamweight bout between Ivan Menjivar and John Albert is set for “UFC on FUEL TV 1″ this February.

UFC officials confirmed the news earlier today.

As a contestant on “The Ultimate Fighter 14,” Albert displayed promise before falling to John Dodson, who would go on to win the bantamweight tournament. But Albert came back strong with a technical knockout win over Dustin Pague at “The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale.” The win was the seventh in his eight-fight career.

Meanwhile, Menjivar has been successful since making the move to the UFC following his WEC 53 loss to Brad Pickett. He defeated Charlie Valencia in his return to the promotion at UFC 129 and followed up the win with a decision victory over Nick Pace at UFC 133 this past August.

“UFC on FUEL TV 1″ is set for February 15 in Omaha, Nebraska and features a welterweight bout between contenders Diego Sanchez and Jake Ellenberger. The co-main event of the evening will feature heavyweights Stefan Struve and Dave Herman.
