Andreas Michailidis and Antonio Arroyo will both look for their first UFC wins when they battle on the promotion’s November 14th card. News of the pairing was first reported by Alfredo Zullino of BJPenn.com.
Michailidis’ UFC debut was last July, losing on a “Fight Night” card to Modestas Bukauskas. He had won three consecutive fights before appearing in the UFC.
Arroyo’s UFC debut came last November, not being favoured against Andre Muniz on scorecards. The Brazilian fighter entered the UFC after a second-round win on TV series “Dana White’s Contender Series.”
Arroyo was meant to face Trevin Giles back in February, however, Arroyo was taken off of the card after facing illness the day before the bout.
