Both aiming to return with a win following a recent loss, Eryk Anders and Darren Stewart will face off at UFC’s March 13th event. Nolan King and Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie were the first to report the bout.
The location of the event that the middleweight fight has landed on is not known currently.
Anders comes off a steeper absence from competition, as he last fought in May of 2020. His last fight, a decision loss to Krzysztof Jotko, concluded a two-fight win streak that he built in 2019.
Anders was scheduled to fight in November against Antonio Arroyo, although health issues took him out of the fight.
