Pat Sabatini will attempt to continue his undefeated UFC rookie run when facing Gavin Tucker at the promotion’s November 20th event. The new featherweight pairing was first reported by Nolan King and John Morgan of MMA Junkie.
The matchup is now on a UFC lineup that doesn’t have a confirmed location or main event at the moment.
Sabatini, a former CFFC Featherweight Champion, has earned two wins since joining the UFC roster this year. His promotional debut was in April, defeating Tristan Connelly via unanimous decision.
Sabatini returned four months later to submit Jamall Emmers in the first round with a heel hook.
Tucker had his three-fight winning streak broken earlier this year, getting stopped in just 22 seconds by Dan Ige. He has the chance to get back to his winning ways in the November matchup.
