Don’Tale Mayes has a new booking, now scheduled to fight Roque Martinez on the UFC’s November 14th card. The new matchup was first reported by Nolan King of MMA Junkie.
Mayes was originally scheduled to fight Philipe Lins on November 7th, although plans changed after news broke on Wednesday that Lins withdrew due to injury.
The fight joins a lineup expected to take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Martinez made his UFC debut in September, losing in the second round to undefeated heavyweight Alexander Romanov. The former RIZIN heavyweight has 23 fights as a pro.
Mayes will aim to snap a two-fight skid in November. Previous losses came against Ciryl Gane and Rodrigo Nascimento.
