Featherweights Chas Skelly and Jamall Emmers are scheduled to face off at UFC’s February 20th event. Nolan King of MMA Junkie was the first to report the bout.
The fight joins a card that does not have a location reported for it yet.
Emmers will enter the fight coming off his first UFC victory in August. His bout in August saw him defeat Vincent Cachero via decision. Cachero stepped in on short notice for the fight, replacing Timur Valiev.
Emmers’ UFC debut was a loss earlier in the year to Giga Chikadze.
The booking for Skelly will see him return to action for the first time in nearly a year-and-a-half. His last fight was in September of 2019, where he defeated Jordan Griffin on scorecards.
Skelly was pulled from a February 2020 booking against Grant Dawson due to injury.
