On Wednesday night, a featherweight affair between Dennis Bermudez (pictured) and Max Holloway was announced for UFC 160.
Both 145-pounders will be riding a three-fight winning streak into the May 25 contest.
After losing to Diego Brandao in “The Ultimate Fighter 14” finals, Bermudez has bounced back to beat Pablo Garza, Tommy Hayden and most recently Matt Grice.
At the tender age of 21, Holloway is the Octagon’s youngest athlete. “Blessed” owns a 7-1 professional record, with his lone blemish coming against Dustin Poirier.
The up-and-comers will meet in the card’s prelims.
MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the extravaganza.
Here is the event’s current lineup:
Jeremy Stephens vs. Estevan Payan
Robert Whittaker vs. Colton Smith
Dennis Bermudez vs. Max Holloway
KJ Noons vs. Donald Cerrone
Gunnar Nelson vs. Mike Pyle
Abel Trujillo vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov
Stephen Thompson vs. Amir Sadollah
TJ Grant vs. Gray Maynard
James Te Huna vs. Glover Teixeira
Junior dos Santos vs. Mark Hunt
Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva vs. Cain Velasquez (UFC heavyweight champion)
