Mike Davis will return to action later this year, facing Jai Herbert as part of UFC’s return to the O2 Arena in London, England.
The fight was confirmed for UFC’s March 19th “Fight Night” card on Thursday.
Davis has fought three times since joining the UFC roster in 2019. While he lost his promotional debut to Gilbert Burns, he has since bounced back with wins over Thomas Gifford and Mason Jones.
The upcoming fight will be Davis’ first appearance in over a year.
Herbert earned his first UFC win in October. The former Cage Warriors Lightweight Champion snapped a two-fight skid in his appearance last year, stopping Khama Worthy in the first round of a fight.
