Former Cage Warriors Lightweight Champion Jai Herbert will look for his first UFC victory on February 20th, fighting Drakkar Klose. Simon Head and Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie were the first to report the story.
The fight joins a lineup which does not have a location known for it currently.
Herbert made his UFC debut in July, where he was stopped in the third round by Francisco Trinaldo. The fight was Herbert’s first loss in a while, as he was entering the UFC after a strong run in regional promotion Cage Warriors.
Klose will return for the first time after a stoppage loss to Beneil Dariush back in March. Klose had a three-fight win streak before losing at UFC 248.
