UFC 183: Silva vs Diaz, which is set to take place on January 31st in Las Vegas, got even deeper earlier today when the UFC announced that a Lightweight tilt between Joe Lauzon and Al Iaquinta has been added to the card.

Joe Lauzon, who has the most post-fight bonuses in UFC history (13), is currently in the midst of a two fight winning streak that includes wins over Michael Chiesa and Mac Danzig. Lauzon, who is still just 30 years of age, has a professional record of 24-9-0.

Al Iaquinta, who made a name for himself on the fifteenth season of the Ultimate Fighter, is also in the midst of a two fight winning streak that includes wins over Ross Pearson and Rodrigo Damm. Iaquinta, who has won five of his last six fights, could see his stock rise considerably with a victory over the always tough Joe Lauzon at UFC 183.


The UFC 183 card is nearly complete and now looks like this:

Anderson Silva vs Nick Diaz
Tyron Woodley vs Kelvin Gastelum
Miesha Tate vs Sara McMann
Tim Boetsch vs Thales Leites
Thiago Santos vs Andy Enz
Jordan Mein vs Thiago Alves
Richardson Moreira vs Ildemar Alcantara
Diego Brandao vs Jimy Hettes
Rafael Natal vs Tom Watson
Ian McCall vs John Lineker
Al Iaquinta vs Joe Lauzon

Everybody is talking about how stacked UFC 184 is but UFC 183 has incredible depth from top to bottom. This should be a fantastic card.
