Mariano will take on Lando Vannata in a light heavyweight matchup at UFC 234 on Feb. 9, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Mariano is just 6-4 as a professional and will be making his UFC debut at the age of 32. He likely draws this spot on the undercard due to the fortunate fact he's teammates with Anderson Silva, who will be taking on Israel Adesanya in the pay-per-view portion of the event. Mariano stands at 6-1 and will look like the bigger man when the two meet, but Vannata has a big experience edge with six UFC fights (1-3-2) under his belt, despite being nearly six years younger.
