Matthew Semelsberger will get his win streak tested by explosive welterweight Khaos Williams at UFC’s June 19th card. News of the pairing was reported fir by Nolan King and Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie.

Semelsberger has been undefeated since he joined the UFC roster last year. He made his promotional debut in August, where he scored a decision win over Carlton Minus.

He is currently coming off a quick win in his last performance, stopping Jason Witt with punches in only 16 seconds last month.
