Flyweights Tagir Ulanbekov and Tyson Nam are expected to meet at UFC’s June 19th event, per a recent report from Nolan King and John Morgan of MMA Junkie.
The fight joins a lineup that does not have a confirmed location at the moment.
Ulanbekov will be competing in his second UFC bout. His first appearance was a win in 2020, earning a unanimous decision victory over Bruno Silva. He has since struggled to find a fight since then, as two bookings against Matheus Nicolau have fallen through early this year.
Nam was given a loss in his last appearance, losing a split decision to Matt Schnell in January. Prior to then, Nam was picking up momentum with two stoppage wins in 2020.
