A pair of fights between up-and-coming prospects has been added to the Nov. 10 UFC Denver Fight Night card.

Mike Trizano, who won the latest season of “The Ultimate Fighter” in July, is going to take on Luis Pena in a lightweight bout. Trizano (7-0) won a split-decision over Joe Giannetti to win the show’s lightweight tournament. Pena (5-0) was also on the show but suffered a foot injury in the quarterfinals.

Also added is a fight between light heavyweights Alonzo Menifield and Saparbeg Safarov. Menifield (7-0) earned a contract on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series after beating DaShawn Boatwright with an eight-second technical knockout. Safarov (8-2) began his mixed-martial arts career undefeated but has lost his two matches since joining the UFC in December 2016.

The event marks the 25th anniversary of UFC 1, which took place Nov. 12, 1993 at Denver’s McNichols Sports Arena.
