Lerone Murphy’s undefeated UFC run will be put on the line on August 14th when he faces featherweight Charles Jourdain. News of the fight was confirmed earlier this week by Ken Wong.
The bout joins a card that does not have a confirmed location currently.
Murphy has yet to lose since he joined the UFC roster in 2019. While his promotional debut concluded in a draw, Murphy has since picked up a stoppage win over Ricardo Ramos and a decision win against Douglas Silva.
He now fights Jourdain, who recently returned to the win column with a finish victory against short-notice opponent Marcelo Rojo. The victory earned the Canadian a win after a loss and draw in his two previous appearances.
Middleweights Derek Brunson and Darren Till are currently set to headline UFC’s August 14th card. The fight is the sole bout that has been reported for the lineup previously.
