Former BAMMA Champion Rhys McKee will attempt to earn his first UFC win on November 14th, facing Alex Morono on a “Fight Night” card. The matchup was first reported by Farah Hannoun and Simon Head of MMA Junkie.
The fight is expected to take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
McKee made his UFaC debut in July, losing a bout in the first round to Khamzat Chimaev. Prior to the loss, McKee had three-straight wins in notable regional promotion Cage Warriors.
Morono will also come back from a loss in his last fight. Morono had a three-fight streak broken last February when Khaos Williams stopped him in 27 seconds with punches.
