Bantamweights Louis Smolka and Davey Grant are expected to meet at UFC’s May 14th event, per a recent announcement from the promotion.
The matchup is joining a “Fight Night” card that doesn’t have a location at the moment.
Smolka, a UFC vet of 16 appearances, will be fighting to return to the win column. He took a loss late last year, getting stopped in the first round of a fight against Vince Morales.
Grant has avoided a three-fight losing streak before. He notably bounced back from two consecutive losses in 2019, going on to attain three wins in a row.
