Both attempting to bounce back from losing their UFC debut, KB Bhullar and Andreas Michailidis will compete at UFC’s May 1st event. Alfredo Zullino of BJPenn.com was the first to report the matchup.
UFC’s May 1st event does not have a confirmed location at the moment.
Bhullar suffered a quick loss in his promotional debut, getting stopped within two minutes by Tom Breese in October. The fight handed Bhullar his first loss as a pro following an eight-fight run on the regional scene.
Bhullar was taking the place of a previous opponent for Breese.
Michailidis’ last fight saw him retire from action against Modestas Bukauskas after being on the receiving end of a dominant one-round performance. He took the fight on short notice, replacing Vinicius Moreira.
