Heavyweights Jared Vanderaa and Justin Tafa Booked For May 22nd UFC Lineup

Jared Vanderaa will attempt to bounce back from his UFC debut loss on May 22nd when fighting Justin Tafa, per a report from Mike Heck of MMA Fighting.

The fight joins a quickly growing UFC lineup that does not have a confirmed location at the moment.

Vanderaa made his UFC debut in February, losing a fight to Serghei Spivac via stoppage in the second round. Vanderaa entered the UFC after a one-round victory over Harry Hunsucker on “Dana White’s Contender Series” last year.

Tafa will be returning after losing a split decision to Carlos Felipe in January. He earned his first UFC win in his previous bout, defeating Juan Adams in 2020.
