Looking to return to the win column after a back-and-forth stoppage loss recently, Randy Costa will face Tony Kelley at UFC’s December 11th pay-per-view event. The fight was first reported by Mike Heck of MMA Fighting.
The fight joins UFC 269, a card that does not have a confirmed location at the moment.
Costa took a loss in July, getting finished against Adrian Yanez in the second round of a hectic fight. Prior to the loss, Costa had attained two first-round wins, stopping Journey Newson and Boston Salmon.
Kelley earned his first UFC win in his last appearance, defeating Ali AlQaisi via unanimous decision a year back. His UFC debut was two months before then, losing a decision to Kai Kamaka III at UFC 252.
