Anthony Ivy has been booked against fellow welterweight Christian Aguilera on the June 13th UFC show. First reported by Sherdog, the matchup will be the UFC debut for both fighters.
Earlier in the week, Ivy was expected to face Gerald Meerschaert at UFC 250, stepping in for Ian Heinisch. That matchup was scratched, however, after Heinisch was cleared to compete on the card again.
Ivy made his professional MMA debut in 2015. With a record of 8-2 so far, he’s currently on an impressive five-fight winning streak.
Aguilera has built up a 13-6 record on the regional MMA scene, including numerous fights in high-level promotion LFA. His last fight was a win over Glaucio Eliziario at LFA 81.
UFC Fight Night is set to be headlined by strawweights Jessica Eye and Cynthia Calvillo. The card will take place from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
