Andre Ewell has found a new opponent, as he is now being booked to face Chris Gutierrez at Saturday night’s UFC 258 card. The matchup, which will be held at a catchweight of 140 pounds, was first reported by Mike Heck of MMA Fighting.
The bout joins a pay-per-view card that is set to happen at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
The matchup sees Ewell get a fight just days after his February 6th bout against Cody Stamann was cancelled. The cancelled bout came due to UFC’s COVID-19 protocol forcing Ewell out of the bout.
Gutierrez enters the fight after winning three of his last four fights. His last bout was in August, where he fought to a draw against Cody Durden. Before then, Gutierrez had a stoppage win against Vince Morales.
