On Wednesday, a welterweight shootout between former top contender Thiago Alves (pictured) and Jordan Mein was announced for the UFC’s debut event in Tulsa.
FoxSports.com first reported the tango.
The August 23 event takes place inside BOK Center in Oklahoma.
Alves has alternated between wins and losses over his past six outings. “Pitbull” most recently posted a unanimous decision victory over Seth Baczynski in April.
Mein bounced back from a devastating TKO loss to Matt Brown by taking a split decision against Hernani Perpetuo at UFC on FOX 11.
No word on whether the card will be made available for live viewing on UFC Fight Pass, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2 or some combination of the three.
