UFC is currently looking to book a heavyweight bout between Josh Parisian and Roque Martinez for their June 19th card. The potential matchup was first reported by MMA DNA on Thursday.
The location for the heavyweight bout is not known currently.
Martinez could potentially find himself in a must-win position, as he enters the bout after two previous UFC losses.
Parisian will be returning after not succeeding in his UFC debut. The 31-year-old lost his first fight for the promotion in November, fighting to a decision against Parker Porter.
Parisian earned his UFC contract in August, defeating Chad Johnson on TV show “Dana White’s Contender Series.”
