Jake Hadley’s UFC debut against Allan Nascimento has been re-booked and is now expected to take place at UFC’s May 14th event. News of the new date for the bout was first reported by Marcel Dorff of Eurosport Netherland earlier this week.
The fight is joining a card that doesn’t have a confirmed location at the moment.
A fight between Hadley and Nascimento was first booked for March. However, that iteration of the fight didn’t happen due to Hadley suffering an injury.
Hadley is an undefeated flyweight with eight pro wins. He earned a UFC contract on “Dana White’s Contender Series” last year, scoring a submission victory against Mitch Raposo. Earlier appearances in his career include a bout in Bellator and a title fight in Cage Warriors.
Nascimento will be fighting to bounce back from an unsuccessful UFC debut. His first appearance for the promotion came in October 2021, where he lost a split decision to Tagir Ulanbekov.
