Featherweights Shane Burgos and Billy Quarantillo are expected to meet at UFC’s November 6th pay-per-view event, per Marcel Dorff of MMA DNA.
The fight joins UFC 268, which is expected to take place at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York, USA.
For the first time in his career, Burgos will be looking to break out of a two-fight losing streak. The 30-year-old has taken a loss twice over the past year, losing a decision to Josh Emmett and getting finished by Edson Barboza.
Before then, Burgos had won six of his seven octagon appearances.
Quarantillo is coming off a finish victory that he earned against Gabriel Benitez in July. The performance put him back into the win column after taking his first-ever UFC loss to Gavin Tucker in late 2020.
